Erosion Groove Direct
| E2 5c|
<< Crackstone Rib < Ribstone Crack | Shadow Wall > Yellow Crack >>
A direct and tricky pitch on which good technique and a bit of arm power are needed.
1) 15m. Scramble up past a holly tree, then continue on the wall on the left to gain a stance on a large flake.
2) 5a, 20m. Gain the corner via some tricky moves and follow it, passing right of an overlap at 15m, to a good stance.
3) 5c, 20m. The crux comes after a step right, gaining the groove is problematical, but a wide crack above relents slightly, and hopefully leads to the top.
