Rockfax Description
Magnificent climbing up the diagonal cracks in the left wall of Owl Gully. Start by a thin horizontal crack and swing left. Make some hard moves past where it splits, then continue along the rising juggy diagonal to the arete and a good rest. Step back right and pull over the roof finishing with a steep mantel. © Rockfax

FA. Keith Myhill (one point of aid) 1971.

βeta: Using a low good hold with your left hand on the diagonal descending from the bifurkation sets you up better for the move

βeta: Felt fairly easy really- I traversed out a little way to place a good cam, traversed back and chilled then went for it. Found there was no real need for this as the start is the crux anyway and after that it's just pure climbing pleasure.

βeta: I found those crux moves to pass the bifurcation *desperate* - hardest 5c moves I've ever done, but then I can't do 1-arm lockoffs with no footholds... In comparison, the rest of the route is easy!
