Adjacent Climbs
<< Connies Crack/Snowdrop
 
Astoroth Direct >>
Start up Astoroth instead of Connies Crack and move L on the obvious shelving break to join Connies Crack/Snowdrop. It can be useful to take a hanging stance near the end of the shelving break to minimise rope drag although with care it can be done with the more comfortable stance higher up.

Fantastic second pitch, traversed into it from Astoroth. I had seconded it last year but really wanted to lead it. One of the best E4's around.

Absolutely awesome - wild moves through the grove and then a pumpy, over-hanging pillar of rock that entertains all the way to the top.
