Even if most of Trevallen is beyond you at present, this route is well worth seeking out. It climbs the remarkable tube high on the wall right of the abseil. Start below and left of the tube, at a rising line of holds. Climb these from the left (or climb directly to them from below at E1 5c). The wide crack and wacky tube above are then followed more easily to the top.


one of those routes that you have to do but then wonder what the hell you were thinking of!! is it still there? not for much longer surely!!

Did the E1 version which made the route very unbalanced as its only about 4a once you get past the first 10m. Worthwhile for a laugh but not a 2 star route

The only route I have climbed on which it was possible to rotate through 360 degrees while climbing.

A hard start (direct) unless you have a bigger brain than me and can work the move out.
Once you're on the ramp it's a faily easy HVS.
The Hole experince is a 'must do' for anyone.
