Rockfax Description
The original girdle which follows the break below the top roof. Good protection and amazing positions make this a great expedition. Start just right of a small cave, below an open groove.
1) 5a, 15m. Enter the groove from the right then follow it , moving left at the top to belay on a ledge.
2) 5a, 25m. Move up onto an arete on the left. Follow this then step left onto the wall and move up to the break. Follow it leftwards to the New Dimensions belay.
3) 5b, 25m. Continue traversing left to a wide recess and big thread. Then descend 5m to a bolt belay on the lower break.
4) 5c, 27m. Move left to a scoop then follow a break to the arete. Go left again to a short wall and finish up leftwards. © Rockfax
