Rockfax Description
There is an unremarkable lower pitch to the right of Two Pitch Route that is usually ignored. Do this (5a ) or start from a stance on the ledge left of the tower. Move out right then head through the imposing bulges via a short crack with one powerful move to reach easier ground. © Rockfax

FA. John Gosling (with a little tension) 1969

βeta: Big lock-off from a slopey jug to reach a handjam in the short slightly flared crack which, in order to protect the move, you have to partially block with a cam.

MSchobitz 15 Jul, 2017 Lead G/U Jumped off twice when I just couldn't get that second hand jam in, but did it on my third go. The fall is ok if you jump outwards a bit to miss the ledge (well, at least for the climber, sorry Ed!). Very cool route though! E2/3 5c is maybe more accurate?
