Description:

Along the front (roadside-facing) wall of the main Eden park climbing wall there are two, tall battlements/towers. Each battlement has three faces: left, front, and right. This line goes up the left face of the left-most battlement. Small-ish cracks between the large bricks provide good sized crimpers for sustained climbing all the way up to the parapets. Most of the locals bouler/free solo these lines - but setting up a toprope is easy and a good idea.

3 out of 5 stars Battlement Lefty

Sustained horizontal-crack crimpers to the parapets. Kinda fun - but hey, it is an old resevoir wall afterall, right?
