Rockfax Description
An impressive line with a testing middle pitch that overcomes the mid-height overhangs via some difficult moves. Start just right of an arete.
1) 4b, 22m. Climb the wall and groove to a ledge and belay below the overhang.
2) 4c, 14m. Traverse right to a ledge then head up steeply to a small ledge on the right before moving back left to the base of a corner. Climb the corner to a small stance and belay.
3) 4b, 20m. Continue up the wide corner-crack to a large ledge on the right. Finish up the wall above it. © Rockfax
