<< Heaven's Door < The Big Sleep | Iron Maiden > Swordfish >>
This is a typical Stackpole route; a steep start, a traverse and a well-positioned upper section. Start below a steep crack.
1) 6a, 30m. Gain the crack from the right and climb it to a break 4m below the main roof. Trend leftwards to a hanging arete below a break in the roofs. Climb into the groove above and follow this to a ledge on the left.
2) 5a, 10m. Move across to the wide crack and finish up this.
FA. Nipper Harrison 2.8.81
The first pitch is great and worth 2 stars. Exciting moves up the groove above the roof. Low in the grade.
