<< Ten Degrees North < Nexus | None > None >>
Another great route on amazing rock although less popular than its neighbours. </br>1) 6m. Start as for Plexus, but belay on the first large ledge.</br>2) 5c, 35m. Move up the slab as for Nexus. At the roof make a dramatic move through the overlap into a groove. Follow this up and right to an airy perch on an arete. Take the groove up and move out left to reach the end of a small roof. A tricky traverse right below this leads to a good flake. Follow this up and then trend left as the angle eases to the belay at the end of the roof.</br>3) 5c, 35m. Head up the slab on the right as for Nexus and follow it to a collection of pegs at a steepening. Move left past these onto a ledge. Move up the slab above to the roof and traverse delicately left across this to a peg and small wire. Make committing moves up and into the narrow groove. Climb this and the arete to a good hold and the end of the difficulties. Follow a line of weakness up and left and continue on diagonally to the abseil point.
