<< Central Wall < Barracuda  |  Stairway to Heaven > Blue Angel >>


A tremendous pitch which requires careful rope work. It is only E6 if the good peg on Stairway to Heaven is clipped. Follow Barracuda to the bush in the main break (peg above). Traverse 2m right and make one move up before continuing the traverse to a small corner - small cam in a flake and good peg on Stairway to Heaven to the right. Crux moves up rightwards end at a break and a move right into another small corner. Take the wall on right to finish. Lower-off.

Possibly the most popular E7 on Yorkshire Trad Limstone in 2000?

Worth noting that the half size friend is very poor.
