52m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The easiest of the three E1s, but no push-over. The route can be split in two at the girdle ledge, but is best enjoyed as one of the finest 50m pitches in Wales.
1) 5b, 35m. Climb the slab up and left to reach the base of the wide crack. Enter the steep wide crack and follow this to reach a good resting ledge at 18m. Climb direct to the Girdle Ledge.
2) 5a, 15m. Step right and follow the crack to easier climbing on the arete.
2a) The Grim Jim Finish, E2 5b, 15m. Fire up the crack directly above the belay. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A popular and celebrated route that has not suffered overly with polish and is protected well throughout. P1 5b Starting from the trees, move up right for a few metres before stepping left to the base of the crack/chimney. Move up (a long way!) on good holds that only falter slightly at the crux, to the left of the main crack. Belay at the Girdle Ledge in a fantastic position. P2 4c From the belay, step right to wide crack. Follow this to its top, step right around the arete and follow the incuts to the top and a tree belay in 'The Valley'.

A very exposed hanging belay if you choose the two pitch option. You are really pleased after you do this climb, and the abseil down the Cenotaph Corner area really introduces you to right wall of Dinas Cromlech.

Ggreat climb - on an ispiring crag. 1st pitch is just brilliant - Excellent holds just keep on coming and the rock is awesome. 2nd pitch is short lived but stepping out onto the arete and looking down at the valley floor gives a real sense of position. Well deserving of 3 stars

I got the main pitch with Al doing the top bit. Great gear but save a little finger power for getting up to the Girdle Ledge. The stump of the old holly provided a runner! Repeated with John Hyde in about 1992, again leading the main pitch. I would like to runout in one but my rope would need to be longer. Then again, the belay is one of the best exposed in Wales! A truely great climb!
