Rockfax Description
An impressive line that weaves its way up a series of smooth looking walls. Start at a pillar under a dark stained wall above the lower end of a diagonal band of overhangs. The route is under a drainage line and takes longer to dry than the others.
1) 4c, 24m. Climb up a pillar to below the band of overhangs. Move up right through the overhangs to a sloping ledge. Follow a weakness that leads back left to a groove/crack and spike runner. Move up until a traverse across the smooth wall on the right gains a ledge and belay.
2) 5a, 17m. Go back left to the arete (low nut). Make some delicate moves up the arete before traversing leftwards to an open groove. Climb up the left side of the groove before moving left to a belay under an overhang. A pitch that requires a confident approach.
3) 4b, 30m. Go right to a hanging corner. Pull over into the hanging corner then head up left to finish up a short chimney. © Rockfax
