Dives/Better things relative to the crag


Classic corner climbing at a more amenable grade than its more famous cousin, Cenotaph Corner.

P1) Start by scrambling quite a ways on blocky/vegetated ground above the path to reach a steep crack leading out to the left. Pull through on good holds, then traverse right beneath the through a wet patch. Belay as for Spiral Stairs, just below and right of the P2 corner.

P2) Make a slightly awkward rising traverse to the left from the belay, then blast up the long corner with fun and easy but interesting climbing.

Belay and rappel from a block well back from the edge.


From Cenotaph corner walk left past two aretes and an obvious corner and locate the acute dihedral of P2. Start at an inobvious crack on the left of a black wall- on the right side of the black wall is a more obvious wide crack which is a different VS.
