Suicide Wall Route 1
| E2 5c|
<< Sub Cneifion Rib < Cneifion Arete | Capital Punishment > Suicide Wall Route 2 >>
A harrowing lead to this day, one can only imagine the horror of the first ascent in 1945! Start below and slightly left of the grassy ledge. Climb up the wall past some gear. This runs out quite quickly but the climbing soon eases as you move up and right towards the grassy ledge. Shuffle to the right-hand end of the ledge where an alarming move leads to the first gear in a long time. Now move up and right on improving holds, with only just adequate protection, to a slab. Follow this to a ledge and carry on up to the top.
