The centre-piece of the crag! Approach (see map on page 201) - See approach notes on previous page. Either scramble down the steep, loose gully with great care, or abseil down Pinnacle Wall and then down the left side of the lower wall. No descent is usually necessary, just continue upwards on one of the Pinnacle Wall Routes, or go left to the gully if time is short to scramble out upwards. Guidebook page 212.
