The crack in the wall just left of the narrow chimney has a tricky landing on a green ledge. Best avoided when at all damp.


Did this when it was still green. A horrible route with little satisfaction to be gained from its completion. Quite possible the worst route I have climbed to date.

Well worth doing but partners and I cannot find a 4b solution! three ascents, over several years, have always proved a precarious awkward struggle. Seems more like 5a. Does long reach help?

Quite a pumpy route to place protection.Definitely worth doing.

What a fight! Solid VS, but the crux is baffling! Definitely more fun when it's green!

When it says:
Best avoided when at all damp.
It means it! Devious moves rightwards, but all in all about the right grade.

Nice route (when dry), worth a star then. Tricky 4c move gaining the niche
