When in condition, the central depression and upper cracks offer a brilliant experience that is low in the grade. Start at the left-hand end of a high ledge, below a shallow corner.
Climb the technical central groove to a more defined section of the depression, where the difficulties build before the final impending headwall is reached and climbed on more-positive holds.

Superb sustained climbing - this must be one of the best routes on the Isle.

Engrossing and varied climbing that keeps leading you on - oh and then theres the damps groove !

Did this today during the hottest summer for a millenium and the crack at 2/3s height was still dripping. A great climb, spoiled by the wet. Does it ever get dry?

Rinaldo, the 6th of August was one of the most humid days I have experienced on Portland for years.
