A historic pitch which is more popular than it used to be due to extra bolts. Start up the crack then make hard moves past a blank section to the break. Finish up a groove.

A very short fingery hard section.

To Alan James - There is a new 8b of Alasdair Hannah's on the steep wall right of Darl Pitch 2 that doesn't appear to be on this database. It was finally done in summer of 2000 or 2001 I think (I belayed the successful ascent). This is a 3 star classic even though heavily glued and deserves to make the guide.

A disappointing route which is effectively a one move wonder, and more like 7a. Pitch 1 is the the better half.
