Rockfax Description
Space-walking exposure across the bands of overhangs on its middle pitch. Start as for White Ghyll Chimney.
1) 16m. Ascend the fault to a belay on a ledge.
2) 5c, 25m. Move up rightwards to a narrow corner, then up steeply to below the roof and a stuck-on suitcase-sized block. Using the block, head out rightwards and pull over the lip of the overhang to easier-angled ground. Climb the wall just left of a corner to a good ledge and belay
3) 9m. Finish up easy ground above the stance. © Rockfax
