Rockfax Description
A spectacular and very sustained line that builds to a thin wall at the very top. Start at the clear patch of rock as for Big Brother.
1) 6a, 26m. Climb up rightwards to below an overhang and then make difficult moves past a bolt in the wall above to reach a ledge and peg. Continue up the striated wall above, and then easier ground and a short groove gain a stance and two bolt belay.
2) 6a, 32m. Move up the left-hand side of the arete (peg) to a ledge and peg below a flake. Follow the flake to below an overhang and a large thread. Pull over and make hard moves past a bolt up the wall to easier ground and The Great Ledge. © Rockfax
