Rockfax Description
A spectacular linkage taking on the hold plastered sheer right wall of Central Groove, followed by a powerful overhang high up on the cliff. Start as for Central Groove.
1) 5b, 28m. Climb up the initial wall of Central Groove and bridge out right onto a hanging slab. Immediately climb direct to the left end of the overhang above and pull through onto the vertical wall. Ascend direct on positive holds to the belay at the top of pitch one of Central Groove.
2) 5b, 17m. Climb up and then leftwards to below a large overhang. Tackle the overhang by moving up rightwards on large but well spaced holds to a mossy crack. Move up the crack past a small tree to a ledge. Take the short easy crack to finish. © Rockfax
