DescriptionSituated on the impressive Deep Gill Buttress .Start same as Godsite. See FRCC guide book to Scafell,Wasdale and Eskdale. An excellent climb on good rock that climbs a thin crack in the steep wall between Gobsite and Xerxes.
P1)Climb up easy ledges to a nut belay below the V-groove.45'
P2) Climb onto the steep right wall to reach a hollow flake, and make an awkward step right to reach a ledge below a left facing corner crack. Climb the corner to its top then traverse left a short distance on good holds across a very steep wall.Go straight up through the small chimney with an enclosed chockstone and move up to below an obvious steep corner .Move out left to a sloping foothold and climb the steep crack (crux).Step left and climb up to belay. 5.10b 110'
P3) Climb straight up past some blocks on a ledge,crossing the final pitch of Xerxes where it moves off left. Above the ledge/ramp climb a bulging wall and indefinate groove (thread). Go up this to another bulge and step right to a hidden crack. Follow this to the top.95' 5.9.
