<< Toffee Nose < The One-eyed Man | The Anti Matterhorn > Alien World/Blind Vision >>
A brilliant, visionary line, tackling the massively overhanging left wall of the cave. The first ascent was soloed (S3, 7b) and it has yet to be led on gear.
1) 20m, 6b. From the Beat Ledge, follow The One-eyed Man across the lower face, then drop down and traverse into the cave, using the fingery hanging wall. Make a hard move into the inner cave, to belay on a slab beneath the hanging off-width.
2) 16m, 6b. Move up and rightwards into the hanging 45û off-width and follow this. Then swing left and take a series of jugs to reach a hanging tunnel for a well-earned rest. Drop out of the tunnel and move left on undercuts, to gain the lip of the cave. Move up the wall to reach the thread belay in the base of the corner.
3) 12m, 5b. Climb the superb welded-flowstone corner all the way to the top.
