UKC

15m. A good route worth a star at least. head up the groove of blade runner to the ledge, where A good jamming crack leads a series of ledges, traversing rightwards above a steep wall.

Taking the crack to the right of the groove is 5c climbing to the good ledge.

βeta: The entire top section is going to fall down one day. If you hit if with your palm and use your other hand to map out the vibration you will sense it is a huge slightly overhanging block (perhaps 1x2x0.4m) that is no longer firmly attached, and which has small cracks appearing where it once was connected. It will probably remain in place for a number of years and support a number of climbers crawling over it, but one day it will go and I do not want to be near it then. To me, it was scary enough to back off and finish up the Promontory crack instead.
