<< Scimitar Wall < Sub Cneifion Rib | Suicide Wall Route 1 > Capital Punishment >>
A fantastic route with the main difficulty confined to the first pitch. Above this it becomes more of an open scramble up an alpine-like ridge.
1) 20m. Start just right of the toe of the rib and climb the polished wall up and slightly left, to a ledge at the end of the initial steep wall.
2), 3), 4) and 5) 100m. It is now possible to move up the left side of the rib, before gaining the arete proper higher up. Follow this to near the top where slabs and grooves on the left lead to the top. There are many options available for belaying and you can split the pitches to suit.
