Copenhagen Wall and The Fo'c'sle

The low, undercut face of Copenhagen Wall used to be shorter, the erosion of the ground in front of the block has made all the routes a little longer and a good bit harder - most of the routes are extended boulder problems. To the right the recess of The Fo'c'sle has some longer and more amenable offerings. Guidebook page 343.
