Rockfax Description
The classic E3 at Wintour's Leap. Start in bushes at a flake below a wide horizontal break and very thin crack above it (This is 8m left of the usually very well chalked corners of Heil Hitler!).
1) 5c, 28m. The flake and thin crack (peg) lead to a step right and a short crack in lighter rock. Move up the crack and turn the overhang on its right (peg) and reach a ledge above. Less pressing moves up and right passing pegs gains a tree and belay.
2) 5a, 11m. Take a crack on the right until a move right accesses a groove that is followed to a large ledge that runs under the upper walls.
3) 6a, 23m. Tackle the steep and difficult left-leading groove (peg) to its end at an overhang. Traverse left to a corner and climb it to a ledge at a horizontal break. Finish up the rib and crack to the abseil point and belay. © Rockfax
