Follow the distinctive white water streak to the lone shrub. The difficulties are above the bolts and maybe off-putting for those not used to this style of climbing.


Polished and poorly bolted - barely worth a star.

Definitely polished, I had to zig zag from side to side of the the streak to stay on.
David Bowler - 27/Feb/03

I totally disagree with chris craggs. This is a superb pitch,though it is polished!!there are now 2 pitches above this at 6a and5c.the route is called india.

The line is superb but the polish does make it feel insecure and definately worth 5. India makes a good continuation 2 pitches. Needs 3 full 30m abseils with this combination.

Definately 5, no issue with the bolts.
Ian Waterhouse - 12/Jan/05

The 2 pitchs above are called 'India' in the new guide given 6a, 5c. Good pitchs the first is a tad run out with seepage, feels a bit 'out there' The second is easy climbing on big holds (5 in my book) and spacy bolt- think slabs

Well worthwhile doing them all. Abseil down the the routes to the right.

5b in the local guide, and high in the grade at that.
