Rockfax Description
An interesting link-up. Start as for Porky at its wide crack.
Climb the crack to meet up with The Lord Falmouth on the left and move up to its jutting ledge. Hand traverse the ledge right and swing along good holds, past the niche of Porky, to a ledge on the arete. Finish direct via some arete hugging moves. © Rockfax
