<< Outside Edge Route < Ordinary Route | Kirkus Direct > None >>
The original and easier of the pair gives good sustained climbing that is never desperate. Start as for Ordinary Route.
1) 4c, 30m. Climb the wall to ledges below a forked diagonal crack. Climb the right-hand branch of this into a niche. Continue to some blocks above to belay.
2) 4b, 15m. Climb up a shallow scoop to a groove which leads up and left to a belay on a prominent break.
3) 4c, 15m. Climb direct past several overlaps to reach a good stance.
4) 4c, 20m. Climb up to a bulging section pass this on the right and easier ground leads to the top.
FA. C.Kirkus, G.Mcphee 1931
For the guidebook team - is this the right line as described in the classics guide? i think it might have been mistaken with the hvs.
