| E4 6a|
<< Diglyph < Daurigol | The Indian Face > November >>
One of the UK's milestone routes for any aspiring hard climber. It takes a majestic line up this stunning wall with initially technical climbing giving way to easier, but bolder moves higher up.
1) 6a, 25m. Climb up to a small overlap below a line of cracks. Climb these with difficulty until a reach gains a crack. Pull up into to a depression to belay.
2) 5c, 38m. Climb up the crack and then a corner above (becoming thin on gear). Make a long move to a good hold then traverse right and back left to easier ground.

One of those routes you plan and dream of.Then it totally lives up to your expectations. Found the reach on the crux absolutely at my limit. Why was aid used in the groove is beyond me, has a punchy finish! Wonderful all the way.
