Description:

Starts 100 yards to the left of the Central Pillar of Frenzy up some third class, just to the right of a large recess. Has a real old-school feel to it in terms of climbing style and ratings. The first six pitches are typically climbed but it does go to the Katwalk on some reportedly mungy and wondering pitches.

Descent Options:

Rap with two 60m ropes

4 out of 5 stars Hard 5.9

Did the first six pitches and rapped off. Hard because much of the climbing requires somewhat awkward, physical movements. Not so straight-forward. Good, fun, clean route.

4 out of 5 stars improves the further up you get

Watch out for deceptively loose blocks on p1. Test everything. Didnt do the final pitch due to crowds and daylight, but up to there was fun + oldschool for sure.

3 out of 5 stars Stiff

The ratings on the first three pitches are 5.8 but in reality are 5.8, 5.9, and 5.10 respectively. Expect some real challenges going forward.
