Green Cormorant Face
<< Bosigran Ridge < Variety Show | Deja Vu > The Dream/Liberator >>
The front of the Seaward Face is taken centrally by this well-positioned and popular line. Start by negotiating 'The Crevasse' and then traversing 7m to a stance in a small corner.
1) 5a, 20m. Move up steeply leftwards through a small overhang to a flake in the wall above and then on up to a horizontal break. From the horizontal break climb up either on the left or right to a good belay ledge.
2) 5c, 10m. Above the stance is a corner with a thin black crack in its right wall. Gain the crack, either direct, or from a ledge on the left, and climb it to a ledge and belay.
2a) E3 6a, 10m. A good variation up the corner to the left.
3) 4a, 20m. Finish up the groove and broken ground above.

In August 2010 there were fulmar fledglings on the ledges on pitch 3. You have been warned!
