Rockfax Description
The slippery corner offers a fine line.
1) 4b, 30m. Climb the corner, often damp, until a stride round the arete finds a belay.
2) 4a, 15m. Chimney Route. Move right to the crack and follow this and easier climbing to the top. © Rockfax

Led Chimney route pitch - could imagine it could be good if dry and not a jungle at the top, but as is a dirty slimey unpleasant route.

A discontinuous wall climb, soapgut, chimney route link up, two days between routes! Completely dry and not at all greasy, very enjoyable.

Need to go back. Excellent first pitch; despite bold and polished start, heads up a groove with lots of potential jugs. Got to first belay and then rained stopped any further climbing.

I led p1 (after traverse in from wall climb) found it difficult with a few committing moves on unpositive holds. good gear all the way though. mike led the chimney pitch, also quite tricky and very polished.

Terribly good traditional fun, included use of kneebars, slimy finger jams, vegetation and even some bad language.

Excellent combo, I got the first and third pitches (not counting walk to Soapgut). First pitch requires care, very glassy and poor gear, enjoyed seconding Soapgut, well named, third pitch really nice climbing.

Tanya Savage 01/Oct/11 AltLd

Backed off pitch 1 as very polished and one tiny wire only; fell off seconding it. Soapgut lived up to its name, but lots of gear, enjoyable climbing. Chimney route entertaining too!
