Rockfax Description
One of the most striking lines on the Main Cliff. This combination gives sensational climbing, by tackling the best pitches from two already-brilliant routes. Start up the slanting crack-line to the right of the Dinosaur Chimney.
1) 6b, 35m. Steep bridging up the crack leads to a series of committing layback and undercut moves to reach a small roof - cam 0.5 and small wire. From here, a very unobvious sequence of blind slaps may or may not establish you in the groove above. Follow this easily to the Positron belay.
2) and 3) As for Positron P3 and P4. © Rockfax
