Rockfax Description
A pleasant way up the front face of the Promontory. Start from a small ledge in a corner on the right side of the prow.

1) 13m. Climb the low-angled corner to its top and then move left and down to a good ledge and belay below the central corner.
2) 4c, 16m. Move back right and take a slim ramp out to the arete and pull around it. Move up the right side of the arete, past a jutting block to finish up cracks. © Rockfax

SuperLee1985 5 Aug, 2016 2nd O/S Interesting varied route, essentialy a slab at the start, then an interesting and delicate traverse along the ledge which is steeper than it looks (crux) then a tricky manleshelf move in the final groove.
