Description 

The rightmost section of Wintour's Leap. Route lengths range from about 30-60m and are often split into two pitches by a half height terrace. The rock is often broken and routes are indistinct in the lower half, but the upper half is perfect! A good mix of grades, mostly from VS to E2 (5.7-mid 5.10), classics include Freedom (VS 4c), Firefly (E2 5c) and La Folie (E4 6a).

Getting There 

Take the descent through Woodcroft quarry, but take a path branching off to the left as soon as possible. This path runs along the base of the cliff to all routes.

Devious! Who thought J Tree grades would make their way to the UK?Pull strenuously up a slick groove/ right facing corner and pass a tree on its right side (original route) or left side (more logical IMO). Above the tree climb up 3 m and traverse left 3 m, then ascend a tricky spot of face climbing up and right a further 3 m. Sort some good pro in a finger-size slot to the right, then make an insecure mantle onto a tiny ledge. Past this crux climb more easily up and right in a groove to finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
