Pink Wall Traverse
<< Changeling < Pink Wall Direct | Mike's Mistake > Clarion >>
Exposed and quirky traversing taking in some of Avon's most impressive locations. Start from The Gallery to the left of Lunchtime Ledge (see page 62 for access to this ledge). Combined with Mike's Mistake (page 62) it forms a classically varied way up the cliff. The last pitch and a half is shared with Pink Wall Direct..
1) 16m. Traverse easily left beneath an overhang to a tree. Continue in the same line to pegs and a stance under the leaning headwall..
2) 4c, 22m. Downclimb the groove on the left to point level with the lowest of the three huge iron spikes in the sheer left wall. Make a tricky move to grab the first spike and then romp up the spikes to a fine and very exposed stance - the Aerodrome stance..
3) 5a, 14m. Hand traverse left along the exposed rising break, pegs, and finish up the short easy corner.
