<< The Troach < Pedestal Crack  |  Silhouette > The Corner >>


A winding route which tackles the impressive wall between Pedestal Crack and The Corner. Great sustained climbing leading to a thrilling climax high on the wall. Start by scrambling up to below Pedestal Crack and start just right of this at a rib.
1) 4b, 20m. Climb the rib for 8m until you can head right into an easy groove. Follow this up and left to a stance on the top of the pedestal.
2) 5b, 40m. Move right along a ramp/ledge to a groove then climb this to a hand-traverse. Move right along this then up to a ledge. Climb upwards steadily until a move right gains a blind flake. Sprint up this to finish.
