Rockfax Description
A great pitch up the steep, shallow groove overlooking the gully.
1) 20m. As for Lot's Wife.
2) 5a, 30m. Move out right to reach the groove. Climb up this - sustained and exposed but excellent and with good protection throughout. Either finish up Direct Route, Lot's Wife or tackle The Right-Hand Crack as described below.
3) 6m. Move left to belay below the twin cracks.
4) 5b, 15m. Move up the crack to where it splits and climb the right-hand crack. © Rockfax
