Excalibur** HVS 5a
[Excalibur, Carn Les Boel, 2 kb]35m, 2 pitches. A splendid, little-travelled foray into beautiful surroundings. Great positions, rock and climbing make this route a must for those searching for some quiet on busy days. Birds usually nest on the stance at the top of the pinnacle between March and the end of June (do not climb the route during this period). Start from good ledges at the base of the approach abseil. Photo on page 243.. 1) 4b, 14m. Climb onto and then rightwards up the wall to a ledge, poor gear. Continue to a belay at the base of a large corner.. 2) 5a, 20m. Climb the steep corner to its end on top of a pinnacle. Climb the steep wall above to finish. © ROCKFAX
