Stennis the Menace / The Great Elmyra
<< The Great Elmyra < Stennis the Menace | Grey English Morning > Grey English Wimpout >>
This modern combination of two half routes has become the classic hard tick of this wall. It gives sustained and technical climbing which bisects the Pleasure Dome traverse. Climb the bulging wall below to a flake and a bit of a rest. Move up the wall above to an undercut then up to Pleasure Dome. Gain a big hold below the thin crack in the headwall (old peg - not crucial). Pull up into the crack with great difficulty and follow it to the top.</br>StM Original Finish - Move right along Pleasure Dome, then pull through the bulge and climb direct to the finishing corner of Pleasure Dome.
