<< None < Right Angle  |  Mastodon > Black Magic >>


The eye-catching rightward exit from the sea-level cave of the back wall is rarely attempted. The often-greasy first pitch has been the scene of a few epics. Start in the cave, which can be gained by an abseil or via an awkward traverse from Right Angle.</br></br>1) 5c, 16m. From the ledge, climb two steep, offset corners (aid, if at all damp) and pull out rightwards onto the open face to an awkward, hanging belay.</br>2) 5a, 17m. Climb the wall rightwards to the left-leaning corner/groove-line, and follow this to a protruding ledge and belay.</br>3) 10m. Finish up the corner.
