Spectacular moves rightwards gain the roof crack. Follow the crack with increasing difficulty to easy ground.

With a slightly harder( and often drier)start this route now gives a 7b+7c sport climb with an old-school flavour!

Fantastic route, then I think most of the routes at The Promenade are great.
Powerfull, technical start, then moves up into a STEEP roof crack for some severe hand jamming. Then, just when you think it's all over, head jamming at knee height is required. Awesome stuff.

The obvious line to the right is 'Event Horizon' (8a/8a+)

Don't be modest Rob. You know it's 8a+.

Fantastic effort on 'Event Horizon 8a+' Rob, time to find yourself an 8b me thinks.. Peace, JD

the hanger has fallen off one of expansion bolts higher up. but there is an easy to place on the lead thread right next to it, take a 120cm sling.
