Arete/slab climb around the corner of Goregeous towers to the left of the gulley.

That chockstone in the gulley is off, so don't even think about it. The crux comes at the top and requires a thin hold you trust to drive up to a bomber hold and finish out to the anchor.

Fun route. One of 8 we did that day with none other than Peter Croft rope-gunning for us.

Solid climbing, even if I did stem the chockstone, can I make it up with a dino to the last jug?
