Copenhagen Wall

The low, undercut face of Copenhagen Wall is taller than it used to be - erosion of the ground in front of the block has made all the routes a little longer and harder. The landings are good though and the wall has few runners hence the routes are usually bouldered or soloed. To the right the recess of The Fo'c'sle has some longer amenable offerings.
Approach (see map on page 477) - The wall is just right of the point where the approach path arrives at the crag.

Scandiarete
A technical tease. Start on the right, a good pocket around left will be found to be of use. UK tech grade of 5c.

Mast Gully
10m. The easy rift that splits the buttress, a useful descent.

Mast Gully Wall
The right wall has a hard start on sloping holds or bridge it. From the cave move right onto the front face for a good finish.
