<< None < Noah's Warning  |  Sabre Cut > Foil >>


A top-class route with a thrilling finale. Start below the left-hand end of a diagonal roof at 18m, below a steep crack.
1) 4a, 25m. Move up to the steep crack, which in turn gives access to a rightward traverse on pocketed rock beneath the large roof (often wet). Belay at the ledges known as The Forest.
2) 4b, 24m. Traverse out leftwards onto the steeper wall for a few metres to reach the superb corner-crack and follow it to an exciting last move.
