<< Think Pink < The Corpse | The Lich > Main Wall Eliminate >>
An Avon rite of passage. Good climbing with a bold feel, although the gear improves as height is gained. Start at a peg and nut belay on a high ledge reached via the initial 9m of Pink Ginsane's first pitch.
Take the easy-angled groove above the belay to a peg. Step up above the peg and pull out left on to the wall, good small nut. Move up and bridge right to a point below an overhang with pegs below it. Pull over the overhang, good nut in borehole, to a peg before moving down right and then up to an overhang, peg and another good nut. Traverse left below the overhang past a peg to a stance at a quarry spike and bolt. Finish up Think Pink or abseil off.
