Rockfax Description
An eliminate with an absorbing first pitch. Start just right of a chimney in an arete, 8m right of Ledgend Direct.
1) 5c, 25m. Gain a slot (thread) then pull out right to cross a bulge. Continue to a rest on Yellow Wall. Traverse left to a flake then follow the sustained crack (thread) to the fault-line. Belay on the left in the corner as for Batt Crack.
2) 4c, 15m. Move 2m right then finish rightwards through a V-shaped roof. © Rockfax

βeta: Had a go at this yesterday and after a number of attempts failed to make it over the bulge directly after the slot. Unless I missed something it’s now harder than 5c. Feel free to prove me wrong though!

adam 24 21 Mar, 2015 AltLd dog What a shambles! Got confused doing the move past the thread and fell several times. Burned out then dogged / aided my way to the top.

funsized 31 May, 2014 Lead O/S Maybe I missed a runner but I was facing groundfall from 10 - 15 meters, after passing the thread. More serious than the guidebook let on! Upper crux was good fun.
