The Earl of Perth
<< Limbo < GT Special | Hell Gates > None >>
A great route giving steep climbing on an uncompromising line
Start on the ledge at the base of the wall just right of Limbo..
1) 5b, 23m. Take the right-hand line of thin cracks to ledges beneath the right side of the black bulges, thread. Steep climbing through the bulges on good pockets gains a strenuous perch at a large pocket. Pull steeply out right and up to better holds and a little further a hanging stance at a horizontal break..
2) 5a, 23m. Enter the long groove above the stance and follow it all the way to ledges that allow a short traverse left to a belay and abseil point at a large rock anchor. Not in current guidebook.
