<< Wall of the Evening Light < The Shining | Rhiwledyn > To Boat or not To Be >>
THE line of the Little Orme - a 100m long curving groove which leads virtually to the top of the wall. Sadly it is often wet but when dry, you will find little better adventure climbing. Start at the foot of the ramp.
1) 5c 45m. Gain the slab at the base of the ramp and move up to the wall. Follow the ramp up rightwards for most of your rope length to a small ledge on the right.
2) 5b 45m. Move back onto the ramp and then up to a pillar. Continue past a flat-topped flake and go up a crack on the right into a chimney to belay.
3) 4c 20m. Climb the short loose wall on the left to a ledge.
4) 5a 45m. Scramble across left to below the upper wall. Gain a groove above and follow this, and the loose rock above, to the top.
