Rockfax Description
A bit harder than its left-hand companion, it features a superb, bold and exposed traverse across the face.
1) 4c, 15m. As for Left Edge.
2) 5a, 30m. A committing move gains the gently-rising traverse line which leads delicately rightwards for about 10m. A further heart-in-mouth move gains another slightly higher traverse in a similar vein. A final move up gains a stance just left of the corner.
3) 5a, 15m. Move up and right into the corner of The Black Cleft then pull up left and around the overhang above to a belay.
4) 40m. The slabby gully leads to the top. © Rockfax

Abbed off after traverse pitch due to nightfall. Traverse is bold!

Good traverse with nice moves. Good for gear placement practise on the top pitch.

Great climb, takes less gear than I thought it would, very grassy at the end of second pitch and belay placement are few, and lots of loose rocks around.

Reached a wet section on the traverse pitch a few metres from belay, scary.

Led P2&4. John did the Moscow Variation for P3. Afterwards, walking back down the Eastern Terrace, we both detected a strong smell of pipe tobacco... but no one else was around. Longland's ghost?
