Rockfax Description
A pleasant girdle of this section of the crag from The Promenade to Trafalgar Wall taking the obvious line. Probably best soloed to avoid cutting across teams on the proper climbs. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A great wander. It should only be attempted at very quiet times as it crosses loads of popular climbs. Start up The Promenade and traverse right at the ledge. Reverse the Anchor Traverse to reach Hollybush Gully. Climb the traverse of Powder Monkey Parade into the cleft of Polaris Exit. Reverse this into Admiral's Progress then follow the obvious ledge across the Trafalgar slab to finish up Trafalgar Wall.
