Belle Vue Bastion
<< Overlapping Ridge Route < Pinnacle Rib Route | Grooved Arete > Boot Crack >>
Great rock, exhilarating moves and breath-taking exposure.
1) 4c, 25m. Gain the right-hand end of the large terrace halfway up North Gully. This is best accessed via Little Gully. Belay just right of a large block. Climb up right and go round the arete. Climb a slab to a small ledge then follow the steep slab above. Continue up the curving groove to a large ledge.
2) 4b, 40m. Head right, air beneath your feet, onto the nose. Climb straight up to easier ground leading to the top. Superb.
