This extraordinary outing sees few ascents as a complete route. Some abseil in to attempt the iconic groove pitch on its own. Immortalised rather flamboyantly by Johnny Dawes in the Stone Monkey Video.<br/>1) 6c, 25m. A great pitch up the wall.<br/>2) 6b, 10m. Traverse right along the break to the Paris belay.<br/>3) 6c, 18m. The iconic groove starts smooth and wide and gets smoother and wider before a few holds appear and it eases slightly near the top. <br/>4) 7a, 25m. For those who have climbed the groove the disappointedly hard top pitch still needs to be done, although it is only desperate for a short section.
