<< The Hand Traverse < Left Edge  |  The Boldest > The Black Cleft >>


A bit harder than its left-hand companion, it features a superb, bold and exposed traverse across the face.
1) 4c, 15m. As for Left Edge.
2) 5a, 30m. A committing move gains the gently-rising traverse line which leads delicately rightwards for about 10m. A further heart-in-mouth move gains another slightly higher traverse in a similar vein. A final move up gains a stance just left of the corner.
3) 5a, 15m. Move up and right into the corner of The Black Cleft then pull up left and around the overhang above to a belay.
4) 40m. The slabby gully leads to the top.
