Rockfax Description
Usually in the shadows, this route tackles a groove-system up the left-hand side of the Colossus Wall.
1) 6a, 23m. Start up a rib, passing two bolts. Continue up with difficulty to transition into the groove on the right. Ascend this past more bolts until you are forced out right at the top of the groove. Perplexing moves and long reaches lead up past another bolt to a sloping ledge and belay.
2) 5c, 18m. Climb the left-hand side of the corner past three bolts. This is steeper and more difficult than it first appears! © Rockfax
