Rockfax Description
The third section is perhaps the most atmospheric, taking in the wild and remote Lost World and Mordor areas.
1) From the Pen Garret Hut, walk along for 100m or so to where a scree slope leads down a level, just past the back of the California Hole. This leads to a corridor which brings you to Heaven Walls.
2) Abseil from a bolt belay just below the edge on a ramp.
3) Walk along to the corner and make a second abseil from a rope around a block.
4) On the next level, walk right (looking out) to find a ladder. Climb down this and the next ladder to reach the base of the hole.
5) Head over to the tunnel through to Mordor and go through this.
6) Walk round the left side of the hole, past a rockfall, and take the double ladders up to the Khyber Pass.
7) From here take another double set of ladders to the top of Mordor.
8) From the top of the Khyber Pass, head up a vague path on scree, past a drystone tower, to the level above. Walk right around the top of a landslide. Descend a path to a major incline back down to the main track, then head back through the quarries.
The Lost World Extension - There are some tunnels to explore here. You can extend the tour with an extra loop by walking along the top level and through the tunnel to find the abseil point above The Wall Within. Abseil down here back to the base of The Lost World and repeat the tunnel and ladders from here again. © Rockfax

βeta: Don’t try the extra ab down wall within with a 60m rope (doubled) unless you want to do a scary re-belay half way down the wall!
