The easiest of the three E1s, but no push-over. The route can be split in two at the girdle ledge, but is best enjoyed as one of the finest 50m pitches in Wales.</br>1) 5b, 35m. Climb the slab up and left to reach the base of the wide crack. Enter the steep wide crack and follow this to reach a good resting ledge at 18m. Climb direct to the Girdle Ledge.</br>2) 5a, 15m. Step right and follow the crack to easier climbing on the arete.</br>2a) The Grim Jim Finish, E2 5b, 15m. Fire up the crack directly above the belay.
First proper E1 onsight. Very easy technically, but sustained and a bit goey just before the ledge. Loads of good gear and can be done in one pitch on 60's - It's one off those climbs that everyone should do once.
