Description:© (kieranl)

A fairly good route. Most of the first pitch is spent bridging up 'Holpyp' which isn't bad and the top pitch is atmospheric.

Start: In the 'D Major' gully.

  1. 25m (-) Climb the gully until you can climb the seam on the left wall independently of the gully to cave belay.

  2. 25m (14) Mantle onto block up a little corner and then left to arete. Up steep wall to top. Finishing up the arete is more exciting at 16 but be careful with the rock.


Route History:

  • First Ascent: Chris Baxter, Chris O'Brien. Murray Taylor and Keith Lockwood had previously climbed pitch 2 in, 1967
