Rockfax Description
The headwall left of the slim corner of The Cumbrian is a serious and difficult pitch. Start as for Bridge's Route.
1) 4a, 23m. As for Bridge's Route.
2) 4b, 12m. As for Bridge's Route. Easy to combine these two.
3) 6b, 45m. Move up to a groove in the base of the headwall and climb it to where it fades. Climb left and then up right to meet the right-hand end of an overhang (peg). Ascend the wall above until a series of undercuts lead rightwards to join the slim corner of The Cumbrian. Finish up The Cumbrian. © Rockfax
