Cock-a-leekie Wall

 E2 5c

Adjacent Routes
<< Asparagus < Robin  |  Vinegar Fly > Minestrone >>

A popular route at the grade requiring a tricky move to stand in the break and one sharp pull just above.


how hard this is depends on where you go on the top wall. anything from 5b to 6a, from L to R, the guide is very unclear on this...

The line in the Rockfax appears to climb just to the right of the upper scoop. The moves directly across the bulge must be 6a+ (even looking from above, I would guess more like 6b).

The BMC guide has two E2 lines going up either side of the bulge, the left-hand one moving up on the left of the scoop (hard 5c) or about a meter further right on the wall.

Either that, or a large undercling has fallen off from under the bulge.

Hard E2 5b in my book. No tricks, just need to cover the ground.

There seems to be two routes and a variation of both will go. There is two starts and at least two finishes. The left hand start is 5b the right hand harder and thena right and left finish. We did the right hand and its hard 5c/6a, gear gear your feet, at furst!. It is a good outing though and deserves a star and trying.

Worthwhile route. Tough crux, getting on 6a, on the right of the scoop.
