Flat Top >>
[Big Top., 3 kb]An easily-missed pitch that is well worth seeking out. Start at a crack on the front of the buttress just right of some ivy. 25m. Climb the crack and continue up a thinner one on the right to below the overhang - the 'Big Top'. Move right below it and climb a ramp to easy ground and a belay. There are a number of possible variations on the lower section of the route. © ROCKFAX

windy day first in cornwall on the granite. this was the last climb of the day. the double ropes got snagged in the crack below the big top as seconder was climbing (between belayer and second and out of reach for both). second had to untie, and climb to troubled spot to fix, before tying in to complete. not ideal decision but good experience and a lesson for leaders to always watch their ropes behind them!

Quite challenging and good value for the grade. Moving right and out from under the overhang was the toughest part.
