The groove and wall.
FA. Dave Williams, Geoff Middlehurst 2003


The oddest bit of climbing I have done in a while. Overhanging, which makes it feel a bit...feck...I thought this was a 5!
Its not difficult, just weird. At one point I was SITTING on the arrete with a leg on each side of it, facing in.

Icreadibly I had the same experience, yesterday! I didn't enjoy the (it felt artificial) climb, at all.

I quite liked this, it looks like you have to bridge up the groove but actually it's a couple of nice moves up the arete. Maybe a tad soft at 5 though someone quite good was muttering about it being harder than a 6b wall climb around the corner. Continentals...
