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
