Rockfax Description
Intricate and diverse climbing on the skyscraping final pitch rewards the long approach. The easy lower pitch starts 5m to the left of the base of North Gully.
1) 50m. Take the easiest line past a few ledges until below the White Wall. Climb up to the next ledge to belay.
2) 5c, 15m. Climb the fierce but well-protected thin crack to good ledges and belay.
3) 5c, 35m. A quality pitch in a magnificent position. Climb the easy corner to some ledges below a steep wall. Move left and make some bold moves rightwards up the wall to good holds at the base of a narrow corner. Climb the corner and transfer left to a groove. At the top of the groove, continue up the final wall via a tiny downward-pointing spike. © Rockfax
