Seasonal Restrictions

Dates: 1 March to 31 July

Reason: Nesting Birds

Restrictions apply between the Dancing Ledge and Valkyrie Buttress Direct, and also east of The Razor's Edge.

38m, 2 pitches. A pleasant fist pitch but a potentially dangerous second pitch, shared with Smutti.
1) 4a/b. Start below the crack that forms the right-hand side of the triangle. Climb the wall, groove and crack to the pinnacle to a good belay with some in situ gear.
2) 4b. Climb the difficult corner above until a step right can be made. Pull over the bulge to the right on suspect rock and traverse easily rightwards along a ledge to the grassy gully. The rock is very poor on the traverse and you should try to belay from the fence posts above rather than the grassy gully to protect the second from a potentially serious fall. The leader should not count on any of the gear on the traverse holding a fall.
