Rockfax Description

The first real route in Vivian and quite an expedition. After several rockfalls it has fallen out of favour and doesn't see action these days.
1) 4c, 22m. Climb the right ridge of the front face of the Bobby's Groove tower. The ridge that joins this to the ledge is falling down! Belay off a sapling, then walk 25m up and right and belay on a flake between two small trees.
2) 5b, 25m. The smooth groove is climbed to the hanging railway - the bad step on the approach to Comes the Dervish.
3) 5b, 35m. Walk over to the start of Last Tango in Paris and head up this to the ledge on the arete. Then tackle the wide crack above, which is loose. © Rockfax

Mike Goldthorp 19 Apr, 2012 AltLd O/S Did it for a more interesting way of getting up to the dervish level, lead pitch 2, top groove getting up to the 'bad step' is awwwwesome! But the rest of the route is a bit ledgy and some loose bits, keeps you on your toes.
