Description

Along with Banshee, this is a popular introduction to climbing on the Upper Wall. It's one of the easier routes, well protected where it matters, but no soft touch!

Start up the crack in the slim corner, pretty easy but quite sustained. Where the crack fades, traverse rightwards to better holds and the top. Apparently there was once a piton somewhere around the traverse section. Although the route was upgraded in some guidebooks it doesn't seem to be lacking protection if you have the right cam. People normally abseil off the bolted belay at the top, but it's also possible to walk out onto the Downs.

Location

Near the top of the ramp, an obvious crack line that fades at about 3/4 height.

Protection

A reasonable selection of large nuts, cams up to #3, .75 useful near the top before the traverse
