Rockfax Description
A long and impressive traverse that finishes on Yellow Wall. Start in the triangular niche as for Pel.
1) 4c, 30m. As for Pel P1.
2) 5b, 22m. From the right-hand end of the ledge, climb up to the higher break-line (as for North West Passage) and follow this until the angle eases. There is a belay below on a good spike.
3) 4a, 20m. Move right and then up to gain the break, and walk right until you meet a corner. Down-climb just before this and make a belay on a good ledge at the base of the steepening.
The next 2 pitches are shown in detail on the next page.
4) 4b, 22m. Climb up onto a hanging slab and traverse this, in a mind-blowing position, past a couple of narrowings, until you reach its end by a steep corner-groove. Belay just before this.
5) 5b, 15m. From the belay, move up and right into to a rock scar (where there used to be a groove). Carefully climb the arete to the right of the scar. © Rockfax

Martin Haworth 8 Jun, 2014 AltLd O/S Very good route. Take care on exit groove as it is very loose.

Andrew Sloan 8 Jun, 2014 AltLd O/S Started from midway ledge on second pitch which was quite a pumpy traverse.Brilliant exposure over overhangs on penultimate pitch. Final pitch felt like 5a and is going to disintegrate in the not too distant future.

saintlade ??, 2012 - Think there's been some redecoration on the exit pitch as I'm sure it wasn't as loose when I was there before for Creeping Lemma.
