[The line of Devil's Alternative after a few laps on a shunt, because I'm so cool. , 2 kb]12m. A finger tearing and intriguing climb with poor protection which is difficult to arrange. Start below the centre of the wall, just right of 'Rogues Gallery'. Step up onto a ledge and use a layaway hold to reach a good ledge. Move left a metre or so and then move back up right to good pockets. Pull straight up to a large oak and yew tree on the large ledge above.
