UKC

52m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An excellent line up the cliff with just one difficult section on the first pitch. Start left of Darius, below a groove.
1) 5c, 32m. Climb the groove to a ledge below the bulge (pegs, new and old - possibly loose). Step left then make a committing pull over the bulge, moving rightwards onto the face. It starts getting scary if you go up too far left here. Climb the crack above to arrive at the Debauchery stance.
2) 5b, 20m. Climb the crack at the left-hand end of the ledge leading to a peg at an overlap. Step right below the peg, pull past the overlap and climb a pocketed wall to the upper break. Move left and pull through the bulge on good holds to a tree. © Rockfax

βeta: No reason to split this in two if you have long ropes. Have a shake out at the ledge and go straight up for the second pitch
