<< Black Slab < Ding | The Armchair > Beaker Route >>
A pleasant route with some good climbing on its top two pitches
Start below a small left-facing corner on the first section of cliff reached on the approach.
1) 10m. Move up past a large block to the small left-facing corner and climb it to a grass fringed ledge and belay.
2) 4a, 11m. Just above the right-hand end of the overhang above, make an exposed traverse left, before climbing the steep wall to a ledge and belay on the right side of a large pinnacle.
3) 4b, 18m. Climb up the wide crack to the top of the pinnacle and gain a ledge above it by a cramped mantleshelf move. Move right and up to finish. Not in current guidebook.
