Description 

Follow the crack up right to a ledge. Then go left on the ledge up to another crack, heading up and left, and follow it to a roof. Climb further left into a small right-facing corner, then head for the top.

Location 

Start as for Harvard, but don't go back into chimney. There are slings and rap rings at the top, or you can descend by walking down Radcliffe Gully to the right.

Protection 

Standard rack. Be careful of a loose block about half way up.

The Radcliffe Walk-off is a lot of fun. No harder than the Uberfall.

Spoiler Alert: There's a big inset block about 2/3 of the way up (just above a pin) that is loose. I don't think it will ever come out but it'll certainly get your attention when it rocks forward 1/2".

I really liked this route. I think it deserves to be in bold (i.e. recommended) in the grey Dick book. But I also agree with Swain's rating of 6+ for the pitch.

As of 5/2017 there is a stuck cam above the loose block. Fun climb. Wish it was longer.
