<< Resolution Direct < Cordon Bleau | The Strand > Central Park >>
A good combination which is less sustained than The Strand, however the crux is short lived and technically harder. Start as for The Strand.
1) 5b, 30m. Climb up and right towards the crack of The Strand for about 6m, to where good holds lead out left below a bulge. Move out left and then head up and right into the crack which leads to a belay on top of a large flake.
2) 5c, 25m. Move up and right along a ramp-line, which is harder than it appears. Eventually a short crack leads up from the ramp-line to a peg belay on a small ledge, as for The Strand. 3) 4b, 10m. Climb the slab to easier ground and scramble up and off.
