Space-walking positions through the right-hand side of the central roof are combined with an interesting initial pitch. The third pitch is the E2 part of the route and the second pitch E1. Start at a short corner on raised ledges left of Great Gully.
1) 4b, 9m. Climb the corner and then move right to a stance and belay.
2) 5b, 32m. Take a rising line leftwards up the slab and steep wall to a ledge. Step left to a crack. Take this to the left end of a long overhang. Pull over the overhang and follow the slab and crack above rightwards, to a stance and belay under the massive central roof.
3) 5b, 30m. Climb up to below the right end of the roof. Pull over to a short corner/groove. Move up and then pull right and up past a bulge to gain the wall above. Climb direct up the wall, passing a final smaller overhang on its right, then head leftwards to a stance/belay on a good ledge.
4) 4b, 30m. Climb direct up cracks, short corners and walls to easy ground. © Rockfax
