Geordie War Cry
<< Solstice < Equinox | Scarlet Runner > Massambula >>
Steep, pumpy and awesome. This route takes on the steeper side of slate, and it is obligatory to shout 'Whey aye man' from the lower-off, or a scream of frustration should you fail. Start up either the slab, or the steep wall, to reach a bolt at the top of the slab. An exciting traverse right gains the niche, a hard move left past another bolt provides the first crux and leads to the pumpy headwall. From a large flat hold, a difficult move leads up and right to the arete, before the route finishes back left to the lower-off.
