Rockfax Description
A challenging pitch that doesn't let up. Start below the hand-crack of Oesophagus. Move up thin cracks to the overhang and boldly swing up and right along a flake to the arete. Move up the arete before traversing a short way left to the foot of a wide crack. Head up the crack and headwall, past a thread, to positive holds and a bolted belay above. Abseil off or finish up easy ground (as for pitch 2 of Combined Ops).
Combined Combat, E2 5c - Start up Combined Ops (p.572) and move left to the upper section of Combat. A fine sustained pitch which avoids the serious start of Combat. © Rockfax
