<< Last Exit to Torquay < Suicide Blonde | Triton > Plimsoll Line >>
The soaring white arete to the right of the corner of Last Exit to Torquay is a stunning line. Start as for Gates of Eden.
1) 4c, 20m. As for pitch 1 of Gates of Eden.
2) 6a, 27m. Move up the corner until level with a small overhanging groove on the right wall. Pull across the groove, past an old peg in the groove and a good peg in the wall to the right, and climb steeply up the slim overhanging groove above to a block on the arete. Move up the right-hand side of the arete for 5m and transfer to the left side where it steepens, peg out left. Fingery moves up the wall on crimps and pockets access the final wall that is taken rightwards to the top. Not in current guidebook.
