<< Black Wall < Rib and Slab | Orpheus > Yellow Groove >>
A brilliant route with a stiff crux.
1) 4b, 20m. Start in a bay, below the black grooves, 8m right of a fence post. Head easily up and left to a ledge, go straight up for 2m and then trend up and right to the base of the large slab. Follow the slab until a belay below the corner crack is reached.
2) 5a, 30m. Blast up the difficult corner-crack and follow the easier slab to a pedestal.
3) 4a, 12m. Head left to a steep corner. Make a flamboyant swing left on large flakes to gain the left arete. Finish easily.
