Fully cleaned and rebolted summer 2021.Pitch one, a short flake under-cling layback onto a ledge. Follow two bolts traversing a ledge, then up wandering crack/flake systems. Very classic features. Use runners as the pitch zig zags between weaknesses.
Pitch two, ascends a very nice hand crack, vertical to gently overhanging. Mind some possibly friable rock just before the belay.
****Many years ago this climb topped put the wall. It may be possible but the short section of rock above the second belay is fractured and over grown. Worth recleaning in future years.****
Both pitches can be linked and rapped with a 70m rope. You could top rope it with directionals.
Walk to Earwax wall then continue along the path passing a series of wet corner systems. One of these is “Everest Without Lycra” The large flake start for Sport Fishing is obvious from the trail after passing these features. Look above for a clean bubbly head wall.
