Pink Wall Direct
<< Changeling < Central Buttress | Pink Wall Traverse > Bob's Climb >>
An engrossing and adventurous tour of the wall. The second pitch is no place for a timid second. Start on Breakfast Ledge.
1) 5b, 20m. From the right side of the ledge above the tree pull over an overhang and head up and slightly right to a slim corner. Follow this to an overhang and move over it rightwards to a hanging stance on pegs and an old bolt plus nuts.
2) 5c, 26m. Traverse left beneath the overhang to pegs and gear where it fades. Move up and left to a pocket, peg, and then left again to the base of corner groove, peg. Climb the groove and then romp up the three iron spikes on the left wall to a fine stance - the Aerodrome stance.
3) 5a, 14m. Hand traverse left along the exposed rising break, pegs, and finish up the short easy corner.
