DescriptionThis route tackles the steep face to the right of the ramp route. It starts with a tricky step around which is a harsh introduction to the intimidating face. Route finding is not obvious. We used the High Peaks guide, and we believe we were able to follow the topo; the most helpful tip I can give is to look for the line you would follow as a first ascentionist. The pitches go as follows:
Pitch 1: Step around onto the face, then up some inobvious terrain. 5.10a.
Pitch 2: 5.9.
Pitch 3: 5.8.
Pitch 4: Crux. Inobvious, poorly protected and loose. I remember this pitch moving up and right. I was glad this was my partner's lead!
Pitch 5: 5.10a.
Pitch 6: Join with the ramp route. 5.7.
Pitch 7: Simul to the top following the ramp route. 5.8.
