57m, 2 pitches. Start below the middle of the wall and the large obvious cave. The route climbs the face till a ledge at the base of the cave. Traverse 3 meters right to a thinning in the bulge above the black scaring and the blackness itself(this point can be attain direct). Strenuously pull into the pocket line and follow past a pair of undercut pockets and a finger crack (passing where a block used to be) and pull onto easier holds on the right. Swing rightwards and move up a smooth grey wall on good finger holds to a finger break, making a rising traverse leftwards to the peg belay of Earl of Perth. Traverse 3m Left, Peg, and then just to the right of this, pull on positive but technical and hidden holds straight upwards to the obvious Jamming crack above. Stain to get through this to exit ledges and continue up for 5m or so to the rock anchor and tat.
Abseil from here.
Best climbed as a long single pitch but can be split in 2 at the midway belay.

Happy to find more interesting stuff to do on this wall after climbing most of the routes around it. More great holds and rock, it does feel at the hard end of E2 as per the guide description.

Did the direct line starting via Earl of Perth in one pitch, very good route

In a oner. Got very cold hands. I think this is pretty tough for E2, especially if done in one pitch. Good climbing through the bulges on P1. Had done P2 before as part of the hybrid.

as one long pitch. With double ropes and a bit of care, rope drag isn't an issue. A few good jams in the crack at the top - shame it's so short!

Decided to do it as one big pitch. Got up to the belay point clean then took a massive whipper on P2. Escaped up Earl of Perth

Hybrid route from Avon guide (not listed on UKC) Earth of Perth into Oblivion. Excellent long route.

Led P2. Perfect conditions, perfect route. A fantastic E1 5b second pitch. Great effort by Jack on P1.

Elder scrolls IV ;) Fantastic route, easily 2 stars and my first multi pitch E2 I believe. Don't know why the guide said it was super strenuous, compared to E2's like Banshee on the ramp I didn't really get all that pumped. I think it gets the grade mainly from the fact that the crux section is still fairly hard and sequency and you are quite a long way above your last bit of gear when doing it.

Barry led P (5c), I led P2 (5b). Good first pitch, very good second pitch, P2 makes a much better continuation or 2nd pitch of Earl of Perth than the normal line.
