SERENGETI


Serengeti has several areas with an excellent variety of climbing styles, as well as some popular classic routes. Nearly all the routes on the compact Seamstress Butte are worth climbing, Seamstress and Seams the Same being two of the most popular trad climbs in the whole of the quarries. The significantly harder Heading the Shot is also one of the more popular E5s on slate, while scattered around the plain are a nice selection of sport routes like Peter Pan, Quelle Surprise and Exploding Goats. Routes like Slippery People, Remain in Light and The Great Curve make Yellow Wall worthy of a trip for the extreme climber.
