An impressive wall that is the bigger brother of Red Wall. In the main it is more solid than its right-hand neighbour but it still has its fair share of friable rock. The cliff is in the sun from late morning and the rock can remain damp after rain. There are some areas of seepage, which should be viewable from near Elin's Tower before you commit to the abseil. Approach (see map on page 296) - From the carpark, head towards Elin's Tower, but turn right just before the viewing area and traverse across the top of Left and Red Wall, to reach a large spike at the far end of the crag. Abseil off here to a grassy rib and rake. If on 50m abseil ropes then make a further ab from this ledge to get to the routes which start lower down the wall. For Anarchist use the same abseil onto the central fin as for Red Wall - next page. aThere is a seasonal restriction due to nesting birds between the 1st Feb - 31st July. Guidebook page 301.

Slight, but worth doing for the situation. Start from the promontory, at the base of the abseil, where the promontory abuts the...
