UKC

Rockfax Description
A swerving line that links plenty of technical climbing in its three slightly disjointed pitches. Start below an open groove reached via a short scramble from the base of Easy Terrace.

1) 5a, 30m. Move up past a low bulge on its left, then take the open groove rightwards until a traverse right and down leads to large flakes on a ledge.
2) 5b, 18m. Move back left and climb the wall and corner to a difficult exit left. Belay on the Giant's Crawl ramp below a corner.
3) 5c, 35m. Take a thin crack in the left wall of the corner, then make a technical traverse left to a small perch on the arete. Now head up to a small overhang and pass it on its right. Finish up the easier wall to a grass ledge. © Rockfax

βeta: Abseil block after difficulties on Pitch 3 has good cord, sling and krabs on. Will be able to get back to bottom of route on 50m ropes.

βeta: FRCC wired guide has the P2/P3 belay marked wrong, it's immediately above the tough P2 corner. Description is correct. Also the ab point needs new tat and maillons if someone is feeling generous.

βeta: Low traverse on p3 possibly easier than the desperate dyno off slopers that Hester managed!

βeta: FRCC doesn’t show belay on giants crawl. Probably best way to do this is to link P1 and 2
