A Grand Day Out
<< Ruth Ellis < Bliss | None > None >>
A long, long pitch visiting some wild positions and with lots of fine and difficult climbing. Some nuts can be placed but the majority of the gear is fixed. Double ropes are required plus someone to second the thing! Best to split the pitch at the bolt in the niche on Cave Route Right to reduce rope drag. Start up Supercool to its jug at 15m and move right into Cave Route Left and then on into the niche of Cave Route Right. Move up and then right into Defcon 3. Go rightwards again to the depression on Pierrepoint and follow Pierrepoint before breaking out right into Hangman. Continue up Hangman to the start of its final crack and climb right below a peg via thin moves to access a hanging groove and bolt. Move right into the continuation groove on Ruth Ellis and climb this to a bolt belay.
