<< Black Wall < Rib and Slab | Orpheus > The Bog of Eternal Stench >>
A super route with a stiff crux on every pitch.
1) 4c, 35m. Start in a bay, below the black grooves, 8m right of a fence post. Head easily up and left to a ledge, go up and left for 2m and head further left along a ledge to a flake that leads steeply back up and right to the base of the slab. Follow the slab until a belay below the corner-crack is reached.
2) 5a, 20m. Blast up the difficult and wide corner-crack by a series of wild bridging moves before gaining and following the easier slab to a good belay just below the pedestal.
3) 4b, 14m. Head up into a steep corner/groove. Make a flamboyant swing left on large flakes to gain the left arete. Finish easily.
