72m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An unusual low-level traverse that provides a long and interesting tour of some of the very best rock and positions on this section of cliff. Well protected and easily combined with the excellent pitch of White Dwarf to give a better ending. Start as for Elysium.
1) 5b, 25m. Climb the large crack on Elysium to a ledge, then move right along a twin horizontal break until a step down gains a ledge and belay.
2) 5b, 17m. Follow the breaks rightwards to a spike belay at the edge of the wall, on Acapulco.
3) 5b, 10m. Climb the flake-crack on the right to the fault-line - strenuous - then belay on the right in the fault-line.
4) 4c, 20m. Ascend flakes on the right, then move leftwards steeply to a roof. Cross this and continue up the exit corner. © Rockfax

Led P2&4. Spent 4 - 5 hours on the route dripping with sweat in the mid day sun. Looked at finishing up White Dwarf, but didn't have the energy.

Led 2nd and 4th pitches. Great route - would be even better if the last pitch wasn't so loose.

We both struggled (and rested on gear) on P1, so abbed off at the first belay, totally pumped.

P1 and 3 - quality

clipskipper 25/Jul/09 AltLd O/S

3 excellent pitches at 5b. Pumpy and not for the faint-hearted. Final pitch loose under the roof. Well worth the trip
