18m. A butch outing that is 'only E2' for those who have done it a few times. From the sloping ledge in the corner, pull through the initial bulges (hard for the short) and hand traverse left to the point where strenuous moves up the inverted Y gain the jamming crack; sprint up this to the pedestal. Finish up the short crack above, or more fittingly out right in a glorious position.
Amazing. Quintisential mid extreme Almscliffe action, perfect in every way.
I have done Western Front more than most.. a fantastic route treated with respect..treat it like an E2 and it will kick your 'big fat, familiarity breeds contempt, butt!
A reachy sign would be good on this one, I couldnt reach the jamming crack from the Y. Obviouly was doing it wrong, as i couldnt get it after a rest!
