<< The Disillusioned Screw Machine < Masterclass | Needle in the Groove > Rupture >>
A variation on Screw Machine which shares the same crux. The climbing and positions are good but not quite as good as it neighbour. Start just right of Screw Machine, below twin bolts at the bulge. Pitch 1 is seldom climbed.
1) 6a 20m. Climb the wall past an old thread then move right past the bolts. Traverse up leftwards to the belay.
2) 6b 20m. Follow Screw Machine past its crux then continue direct through the bulge into an open groove. Follow this until you can move back left to join Screw Machine
FA. A.Pollitt 30.7.83. Pitch 1 had been led before by N.Foster.
