Rockfax Description
A stunning and serious line up the impressive wall, bisecting The Tomb. Start as for The Tomb.
1) 4c, 14m. Follow The Tomb to the top of the inset groove and then head up right to grassy ledges and flake.
2) 5c, 20m. From the top of the flake at a block on a grass ledge, move up the wall to meet The Tomb and gain its small ledge above the overlap - bold. Move left and up to below the overhang and then make some hard moves over it and up a crack to a small ledge and belay.
3) 5b, 27m. Move up the crack a short way and then climb the left-facing corner to below a final groove that leads to the top. This pitch can be very mossy. © Rockfax

Scott Quinn 1 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S Hells bells its bold! good Lead from Chris I took the 5b pitch which was the dirtiest thing I've scrubbed my way up in a long time, great climbing when you uncover the holds should be OK for everyone now.

Tubs 29 Jun, 2014 2nd If I hadn't supported two legs of the Bob Graham round the day before this might not have felt so desperate. It wouldn't have improved the woeful gear situation though.
