Description 

Although west-facing, Blipvert is in a fairly tight gully so keeps shade longer in the morning than other walls facing the same direction. This area has seen some development in the last half decade, and is now home to a few hard, long sport routes.

Getting There 

Head past Doctors' Wall to the split in the rocks at the north end. It's the left-hand, or west facing tower.

Start on the low-angled rock at the base of Blipvert Wall and follow the orange painted hangers up the obvious crack to a ledge beneath the roof. Muster your roof-pulling power and then try to manage your exploding forearms (perhaps with a sneaky kneebar) as you quest up a finicky face to a heartbreaking finish....[more]   Browse More Classics in International

Some recent new route action, and clean-up of old routes, has turned this into a destination for ultra-long hard sport pitches. The color-coded bolt hangers give it a bit of a gym feel, but they actually work pretty well for the situation. The downloadable supplement at skaha.org has details.
