Adjacent Routes
<< Eliminator < Legacy  |  Unknown > Stratagem >>

This sustained route follows the left-hand side of the superb grey sheet of rock. Start as for the first pitch of Eliminator. Move up, as for Eliminator, then break right on a subtle line across slabby grey rock (peg) to a bulge. Climb up and then back right, with more difficulty, to an overhang and thread (possible stance). Pull up left through the overhang, via a crack, to reach a small tree. Easier ground leads to a large rounded scoop (loose). Follow this to finish.

A little tough for E1. Start also quite bold. Top bit is scrappy.

Agree quite tough for E1 and top pitch fairly poor and a bit loose

We pulled a block off the top pitch which rolled all the way down to the valley floor and killed a cow...in 1989. I am only now getting over it! Hehe

Probably a bit of a sandbag at the original grade of E1. E2 5b seems about right, a good route which requires typical Clwyd care! Actually only 30m, done in one pitch according to the halfway marks on our ropes.
