|It's Going to be Ugly||6a+|
|40m, 2 pitches. Worth doing for its good first pitch pulling directly through its sizeable bulge at a surprisingly low grade. The suspect structure of upper pitch requires experience and care to gently climb the narrow ’fin’ arête. Start below a hanging slab on the left edge of the large cave beneath Terrace Gully. |
(1) 20m. F6a+
Gain the slab with difficulty and follow it to where things get considerably steeper. Reach for a large pocket and make a stiff pull on good holds to easy ledges and a double ring abseil station above. Six bolt runners.
(2) 20m. F5 (debolted)
Climb diagonally across a small slab and carefully follow the hollow groove above to where one can step right onto the narrow ‘fin’ arete. Follow this arete and the slabby wall above to a large ledge and double ring abseil station. Eight bolt runners.
