15m. Feeling down? Then blast this for a pick-me-up – the superb hanging arête at the top of the ravine. It’s rather too intense to grade it E4, but – if you can cling on – very protectable. From the top of the detached pillar, step up and right to a finger-crack. Extend powerfully high left to clip a peg (long blade) runner and reverse for a breather. Power back up, and make some wraparound moves up the arête to a break (Friend 0.5). A crack around to the left aids a quick dash up medium jugs on the tip of the arête which in turn leave you spent at the ab’ point. (The ab’ point avoids the need to pull on a load of crumbly stuff under the trees – though with a massive demolition job I guess this could be cleaned up.)
