The Parson's Nose
<< None < None | Fallen Block Crack > Route of Knobs >>
This classic route tackles the front of the nose of rock via a series of pleasant pitches. The route lies at the lowest point of the rock nose, down and left of the main crag.
1) 25m. Climb directly up the low-angled slabs of clean rock.
2) 20m. Continue up the slab as it steepens, then trend diagonally right to a stance at the base of a shallow groove.
3) 15m. Climb diagonally rightwards, following a faint crack-line, to reach a large ledge above the gully on the right.
4) 15m. Easy ground leads to the summit of the nose. A descent can be made down the gully on the right (Western Gully), or scramble along the ridge of Clogwyn y Person Arete.
