Gates of the Golden Dawn
<< Delaware Slide < These Foolish Things | The Deadly Trap > Black Poppies >>
A fabulous line up the front of the buttress finishing in a wild position through the capping roofs. Better if started up These Foolish Things with a traverse to the belay at the top of pitch 1.
1) 5b, 20m. From the upper ledge. Step left to the bottom of a very lichenous corner. Climb this, to an overlap and then climb the groove-line on the right to a stance - many pegs.
2) 6b, 15m. Move up past a small ledge to the capping roofs - old bolt - and make tough moves through these to a final layback and the top. Threads and a peg.
