Rockfax Description
This superb climb takes the most direct line on this side of the West Buttress - 'eliminate' in name but certainly not eliminate in nature! Start below a red groove.
1) 5c, 35m. A serious pitch. Climb the groove for a short distance until you can move across the steep right wall on good (but spaced) holds and up to ledges. Head up to a large block and climb the groove above with difficulty over a bulge to the base of the White Slab.
2) 5b, 40m. Climb the groove on the right-hand side of the slab to a shared belay on a flake.
3) 5b, 40m. Walsh's Groove. An amazing pitch up the main groove, requiring sustained back-and-foot techniques. Belay at the top of the slab on a ledge over to the left on White Slab.
4) 4a, 12m. Climb easily up behind the belay to a crevassed stance on the right. This is P6 of White Slab.
5) 5a, 30m. Either finish as for White Slab P7, or step left and follow the slab to the top. This is Longland's Direct Finish. © Rockfax
