Rockfax Description
II, 365m. This excellent extension to the routes on the Red Pillar sees relatively little traffic, simply because so few climbers are aware of it. The route is described from the top of Nabot-Léon.
1) 5c. Follow Nabot-Léon to its finish.
2) 4c. Move right onto the ridge.
3) 5c. Follow the ridge passing some bolts. This can be done in one long pitch or two.
4) 4b. Clinb the small summit above the belay and then make a 10m abseil off the back to ledges.
5) 5c. Move right and climb the cracked slab and step right at the top to belay.
2) 5b. Head up the corner directly above then step left and climb the slabby, right-leaning corner-crack.
3) 5c. A fantastic corner pitch to a small ledge.
4) 6a. Climb blocky ground straight above the belay and then a slab just to the left of the ridge crest.
