| E4 6a|
<< Samurai Grooves < Hyll Drem Girdle | Hardd > None >>
A tricky route with only just enough gear. Start by scrambling up a ramp behind the oak tree to a stance below the steep wall, at an arete.
1) 6a, 28m. Move onto the arete and up this with extreme difficulty to eventually gain cracks by a prominent undercut. Continue up towards the overlap where the climbing starts to ease off. Move up and right to join and follow Hardd.
2) 5c, 17m. Step right from the stance to a groove, followed by another step right onto the blank wall. A tricky move up gains the left side of an overhanging groove, from where you head direct over outrageously steep terrain to a niche below another overhang. Thankfully escape left to easier terrain and grovel to the top exhausted.
