<< Was it Stew < The Fall and Decline | A Touch of Class > Back Yard Holiday >>
A wild and exposed initial pitch snaking through the band of mid-height overhangs.
1) 5a, 25m. Climb up into the flake-line as for as The Fall and Decline and then move right into the base of the well defined corner. Follow this line to the overhang and traverse strenuously right to a peg, and then commit to a difficulty move to gain the lichen covered wall above. Move up the wall and then move right to a ledge and belay.
2) 5a, 12m. Move up the crack on the right of the belay to a tree. Move rightwards into an easier groove to finish.
FA. Stuart Cathcart, D.Whitlow 14.6.81
The 'lichen covered wall' makes the last move very hard, closer to 6a than 5c.
