Well-named and a good deal harder an undertaking than Outward Bound. The gear is good, but strenuous to place. </br>Move up to the overhang, pull through and get established on the wall above with difficulty. Climb direct for 3m before trending right and then back left to finish as for Outward Bound. Not in current guidebook.

Aptly named, I know of several E4 leaders that have been shredded by this route. It's the sort of climb to do when you're buzzing and feel like you can climb 'anything'....

If you're feeling liek this - ideally after a season in the Alps - then you'll find the gymnastic nature of the climbing really enjoyable. Otherwise, you'll probably get pumped and fall off. Several times.

The flat hold over the O/H is an intermediate....forget about more protection 'till you've got your feet on top and are standing in balance....then cruise up the slab with a big smile on your face!
