Rockfax Description
'Cloggy Corner' is comparable to Cenotaph Corner in quality and is only slightly easier. It is often wet but can usually still be done since the jams are all sinkers. Start below the rightmost of the three major corners.
1) 4c, 30m. Scramble up slightly awkward ground, past grassy ledges to a belay on sloping rock below the corner. This point can also be reached from Silhouette P1.
2) 5b, 35m. Climb the corner, fairly directly, with one slight detour onto the left wall at around 6m. © Rockfax

Led P1 which was far from enjoyable- 'scramble' just means ledgy and badly protected. The main pitch however is fantastic climbing.

Desperate! The guide gives it 5b, says `it feels like E1' so why is it not E1? A grade harder than Emulator and much more strenuous than The Strand. Fact.

P1 squelchy and uninspiring. P2 awesome - just keeps on coming and doesn't let up until the very end. The walls either side of the crack looked damp from the ground, but turned out to be bone dry.

what an epic! got half way up p2 and realised i didn't have enough gear to finish it so set up a stance before the traverse back right into the corner and mike came and led through with 2 falls above my stance and 1 wire left for his belay at the top. great day.

Corner was very wet and at 25 feet I had to climb the right wall at 5b+. Much better than Cenotaph which I had done with Barry the preceeding weekend. Graded HVS 5a at the time. Utterly brilliant!
