A very traditional climb that takes the eye-catching right-angled corner-crack at the back of the amphitheatre. Although described in three pitches, it can be led in one by the confident and/or those with a big rack. Start at the base of the corner.1) 4a, 14m. Take the crack to a belay on a ledge on the left level with the base of the Africa-shaped flake.2) 4b, 11m. The next section of the crack is more difficult and leads to a belay on ledges - The Bandstand.3) 4a, 25m. Continue up the crack to the top. Scramble up the gully to where you can walk leftwards. © Rockfax
