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.

The straight crack and shallow groove just left of the back of the main groove has good holds - apart from at the start.
