Rockfax Description
A major route following the blunt overhanging prow, up the front face of the Promontory, above an evil landing. It gives sustained, dynamic and blind moves between some reasonably positive holds and some unreasonably sloping ones. Start beneath the pocket on the front face. Once above this, a nasty slap around the arete for a hidden dish leads to the famous knee-move - not needed unless you've got long inflexible legs. A final worrying stretch for the break (hard for the short) gains protection and easier ground. © Rockfax
