Rockfax Description
The finest route on the The Promontory that follows the mid-height diagonal overlap via sustained and intricate climbing. Start 4m right of the arete at the base of the slab.
1) 4c, 18m. Climb up left easily to a thin crack just left of a narrow corner. Follow the cracks to a small, sloping stance on a red/brown ledge. Belay on good wires.
2) 5b, 20m. Move up and right, above the overlap, for 3m and then make a tricky move back down right to good holds beneath it. Traverse right to a small flake on the slab before moving up to and following the overlap right until it breaks horizontally right. Climb the crack for 4m to a small stance. Belay on good wires.
3) 4b, 28m. Follow the crack until vegetated ground is reached. Pick a way up this with care. Belay on a stake. © Rockfax
