The first route to be climbed on Yellow Wall.
A steep and strenuous route taking the prominent S-shaped groove to the right of The Sind. Allegedly equal to any other of the routes around the grade on the wall. The rock on the first pitch is sound and on the second pitch is no worse than The Sind. Scramble up the grass ramp in the middle of the wall to the foot of the groove.
1. 45 feet. 5b. Climb the rightward slanting break and exposed rib, crux, to reach manky pegs and a small exposed stance at the foot of the vertical groove.
2. 120 feet. 5a. Climb the groove until it bends to the right, forming a small roof, traverse right to a peg (possibly missing) placed vertically up under the roof, pull over the roof and so continue to the top.

Brannock 18 Jun, 2016 2nd What the popular end of yellow walls used to be like before it cleaned up. Very lose, very runnout, very sandy, more of a red walls type route.

Martin Haworth 18 Jun, 2016 Lead O/S Memorable!! This is a good route that deserves more ascents, the grade is bang on, the technical standard of the climbing is never more than 5b, if you like stuff like Red Wall / The Sind you should be OK on this, but it is serious stuff, probably more serious than both of those routes. There was a couple of times on the route when I asked myself what the hell a well educated 53 year old was doing on the sharp end on this route. There are some big run-outs above dubious gear so if you're planning on climbing this ( and it is a very rewarding route) here is some advice: Take a big rack, I had 18 quickdraws/ sling draws, and ran out with 15 metres to go, for every 5 placements maybe 1 is good. Do the route in one pitch, there is nowhere on route to get a decent belay. Plan your ascent at least one month in advance, this will allow you time to attend church a few times and tick the divine intervention box. Check your insurance is up to date. Enjoy.
