Description

An essential classic. Steep and exposed, but furnished with the regular occurrence of positive holds.

Pitch 1 (55ft) Head up the middle of the buttress.

Pitch 2 (60ft) Continue up to the larger pinnacles.

Pitch 3 (65ft) Drop down in the gap and climb the steep wall on the left.

Pitch 4 (50ft) Follow the slab rightwards to a ledge.

Pitch 5 (50ft) The awkward chimney on the right is thankfully short lived.

Location

Start just right of the prominent quartz exposure at the foot of the castellated ridge, which forms the right edge of the cliff.

Descent: Walk round to the back of the cliff and follow the climber's left hand side back down via an easy (if a little loose) trail.

Protection

Standard set of nuts and a couple of mid size cams for the glorious pockets available protect the route perfectly.
