The Moving Finger
<< Pinfold Right-hand < Wooly Ramble | Buster Bloodvessel > Red Flag Day >>
The wall left of Buster Bloodvessel has some friable rock and is slightly vegetated. When clean it is a worthwhile route with a committing initial pitch and powerful second.
1) 5c, 16m. Start underneath a sharp right-facing flake at 2m. Bold moves from the top of the flake gain a good crack and wires. Move right, past a hidden thread, onto a sloping ledge. Continue up broken ground on the right, passing a second thread, to a tree belay just below the crawl terrace.
2) 6a, 12m. A hard pitch tackling the bulge and crack behind the tree belay after a difficult start on finger-locks.
