UKC

45m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
After a hard start the most famous route in the Ford gives steady climbing up the impressive scoop-line. The first pitch has a distinct crux, and the second is sustained in a great position. Start below the long scoop-line.
1) 5c, 20m. Climb the scoop with difficulty then follow the ramp leftwards for 10m and belay where it is most comfortable.
2) 5b, 25m. Continue easily up the scoops, past a small bulge, to a horizontal break. Move up leftwards with increasing difficulty to eventually reach a corner on the left. Finish up this. © Rockfax

βeta: A fine old rambling mountaineering type adventure. Probably E2 as the interesting and fun scoopy crux is well protected and over fairly quickly. The top pitch still has a fair challenge, and in a good position.

βeta: Well hard start with crux at about 7m (small wires/cams). very good route though - scond pitch worth E1 5b and very atmospheric.
