DescriptionA nicely sustained climb throughout with no real cruxes. Really varied and on immaculate quartzite. Guidebook description:
Another superlative route with four varied, immaculate pitches up cracks and corners in the golden pillar. A fine companion to Brisingr, starting as for that route.
1 60m 5b Climb up to the small tree to gain the slab on the right. Some tricky moves gain and climb the crack in the orange side wall of Brisingr, which leads to a final steep move up a flake to gain ledges at the top. Continue up to a belay by a shallow groove right of a block.
2 40m 5a Climb the shallow groove, moving right into a wide crack and trend rightwards up cracks to a ledge and tree belay.
3 40m 5b Ascend the big crack steeply and its left-hand fork, to a point on the left side of the golden pillar near Brisingr. Move right along a break and continue up the face rightwards to a good ledge below the final upper corner. This is 3 metres left of a large vegetated corner to the right.
4 30m 5b Move up a steep flake/crack and the black stain for 10 metres, passing a black spike, to a traverse right into the steep corner/chimney which is followed with sustained interest to the top.
