traverse rightwards into the base of the obvious rock ladder. a bit of trickery makes it easier. stick clip first ring makes it better on the nerves. 4m right of Cenotaph Corner.
FA: Mike Law & James Holbrook, 1980
stick clip ring bolt, commiting dyno to jug, save a little for move into the ladder.
Start: direct start to 'Ladder of Gloom'
FA: Barry Jones, Steve Jones, Dave James & Julian Childs, 1994
Start just right of the 'Barrelling section' of rock. move up leftwards mantling the overhangs to finish just right othe Ladder.
Start: 4m right of 'Ladder of Death'
It was always graded 19, not 20
FA: julian andersen
upp easy slab to enter the grooved ramp top out to finish. 1 carrot bolt where needed.
Start: 3m right of Mantle Machine
Easy to first bolt. Desparate to clip second bolt then even harder to get past it. Can't give it a grade as I failed!
Up short steep black wall. first bolt was pulled when a climber rested on it and fell to the floor!!
the 2nd bolt is probably the same. should be rebolted or soloed with the bolt removed.
Start: where there bolt hole can be easily seen
2m left of ringed project.
2 carrots on a totally blank section of beautiful rock
