14m. A direct on Sepulchrave which only has a short independent section featuring a couple of memorable moves! Climb Sepulchrave's crack then continue directly to enter the large porthole by awkward undercutting and a precarious high step. Finish up the wide chimney above.
The crux is 5c and much easier if you are tall. The undercuts aren't very good and the "easier" HVS climbing at the start and bottom is a real contrast to the small hold pulling. Nice route.
Really interesting climbing. Found the moves really nice although quite scary when so high. The contrasts between the delicate moves that you have to pull to grace your way past the porthole on Savage messiah and the continuation through the thuggish chimney are incredable. Really enjoyable combo!
Hard time. Beautiful through the porthole though one feels deserving off a decent rest. 10 miles of sweat drenched bird attacked precarious dirt caked off width later came the top jugs. A very naughty boy.
