A bit left of the ever-popular pitches of Calcutta & Bombay there is a vertical crack going up 5 Meters to a roof, which is Riff Raff Roof. A few meters further left is a major left-facing dihedral system, part of the route Pfundt's Folly. As the bottom of this corner is poor, you can climb a crack system 3 meters left to a horizontal, go right on the horizontal, reaching the dihedral and heading up to the top of it to join Riff Raff Roof for a final romp to the top of the rock.

So-so climbing on so-so rock.


A standard light rack. Take a lot of 2' slings for tha zig-zagging line and avoid drag with judicous use of those and a good choice of placement positions.
