Description:

The twin "bear huggable" cracks in the middle of the Seven Sisters area. Seven Sisters is a series of 7 cracks found up a narrow gully half-way up the right side of Right Rock (i.e. behind + above Stooges Slab). Getting up the gully is a challenge in itself (5.3 scambling?) and I've been known to raise / lower my gear on ropes through here, and even rapped down the gully once when I was tired. For top roping, go to the end of the gully and then turn right onto the large shelf where the anchor chains are located. Despite the low grades in the Seven Sisters area, the flaring cracks are difficult to protect and the constant left leans make rest stances tiring. I would not recommend this area for beginning trad leaders.

Descent Options:

Rap off chains.
