Description

Radcliffe is convenient and fun way to walk off the left side of the Trapps. If you're descending from north (climber's right) of P38/Dennis/Belly Roll, Radcliffe is shorter and faster than the Überfall.

It looks a bit improbable at the top, but the route winds its secretive way down behind boulders and flakes. Routefinding is obvious. If the next move seems sketchy, look around. You're missing something. Good hobbity fun!

Location

The Radcliffe Descent starts at the far north end of the cliff edge that is at the same level as the tops of most Überfall routes. When walking off from the north, you will likely be on one of two main trails.

1) If you topped out on any route in the Jackie and Friends area, you'll probably be on the trail that runs near the cliff edge and will pass very close to the top of Radcliffe just after the trail drops significantly.

2) If you topped out on a more northern route, you'll be on the other main trail which runs about 30 yds. "inland". When this trail drops steeply about 40 ft. and passes a clean cliff-face (on your right), turn left off the trail and walk to the main cliff edge.

Now, look at the pictures.

The bottom of Radcliffe is between P38 and Dennis.

Protection

I suppose timid souls could place gear or belay from the top but really it would be hard to fall far enough that a rope would help.

Photos

It is worth taking a trip up and down once to get familiar with the route. As indicated, the bottom is between P38 and Dennis - follow the easiest route up past the tree in the crack early on. It angles up and left over/behind P38. Aug 10, 2016

Someone's been using this route as a toilet. Bad mountain karma on them! Jul 23, 2017
Hard to blame them, it must be at least a 15 second walk from there to the vault toilet. And there could have been a line! Jul 26, 2017
