A classic route and quite a breakthrough for its day. Ivan Waller had the comfort of listening to a gramaphone while tackling the crux!

1) 90ft 5.8. Easily from the ledge at the bottom of Terrace Wall up blocks to a possible belay. Follow grooves up the edge of the slab to an exposed position. The crux is next - thin moves then straight up to the Grove of Bollards to the left of a large roof.

2) 70ft 5.7. On your right you'll see a traverse on jugs along the lip of the roof - take this in a fantastic position to the arete, move right then head up to the north ridge on easier ground.


A steep clean wall, the Terrace Wall, on the upper section of the North Buttress.


Nuts (wires and hexes) work just fine. Cams can be used too.
