|Ancient Mariner||E1 5a|
|16m. An old Trad. line, for which the original grade of HS 4b seems completely inappropriate to the moderator. A more representative grade is shown above. It has Eng. 5a moves and very little protection. It also has an unstable 'cornice'. Best top-roped only, with a rope slung out left at the top. The line already has three staples and it might best be made into a sport climb, using a start up the steep rock a few metres to the left of the original Ivy League start. |
