<< Yellow Crack < Zangorilla | Old Holborn > None >>
A poor bushwhacking starts leads to a fantastic pillar. Start below a big yew tree about 15m up the cliff in a groove. </br>1) 15m. Climb the groove and traverse to the yew tree and belay. </br>2) 5b, 34m. Climb the crack in the slab to a spike and move up and left on flakes to a small roof. Balancy moves up onto a ledge on the left lead to a very cruxy pull onto the rib. The stepped rib is a joy to climb and leads to the tree belay on Shadow Wall.</br>3) 8m. As for the last pitch of Shadow Wall or abseil off the tree.
