UKC

Rockfax Description
A classic and bold wall climb that weaves its way up the stunning face right of Cenotaph Corner. Climb up to the leftward-slanting crack by an undercut at 5m. Follow this crack for 2m, then head up and right on good holds to the first ledge. Move up and left to reach a prominent spike and move left again on crozzly pockets up to reach the base of a slim groove. Follow this to arrive at the Girdle Ledge. Step slightly right, arrange crucial protection and climb the wall trending slightly leftwards to the porthole. Pass this, all guns blazing, aiming for a jug and the safety of the final ledge above. Pause and enjoy your position above the crux. Walk rightwards and finish up the crack. © Rockfax

βeta: Just awesome. Trained my mind and my body for months so I could enjoy this, then flew all the way from Hobart Tasmania to do it. Incredible climb and a very full experience. Stacked full of great gear but you need to be prepared to go. Lifelong ambition which I didn’t think I’d make having spent my first 50 years bumbling around on e2’s and 3’s. Amazing to share the experience with Rachel who always has my rope and my back.
