Left-hand Red Wall
| E3 5c|
<< Cannibal < Schittlegruber | Heart of Gold > Pagan >>
Rather harder and much scarier than its name-sake on Red Wall. The first pitch is horrific - soft, loose and difficult to protect. Whereas the top pitch is harder (both physically and geologically) but easier to protect. Start down the grassy rake, just above a line of overlaps.
1) 5c, 30m. Start up the groove, and shuffle up to a roof. Waddle right onto a steep slab and head up and across this to another shallow groove. A committing finale leads to the ledge and belay.
2) 5c, 35m. To the right is a flake/crack, move out and then up it to a small ledge. Traverse right past a peg into a shallow niche and gain the diagonal crack above. Follow this crack up and right until it is possible to finish directly up to the top.
