Playboy Area


Beyond City Limits Wall is a large rubble fan with a broken buttress on its right, then a less broken section before a classic V-shaped corner, the climb Playboy. There are a couple of easier routes to the left of 'Plantagenet' however they are only for desperados.

Grade Route

10m left of Playboy and 6m up slope. Climb drill hole to ledge. Up and over the next slab, then follow the bolts on the second wall.

Set by Oliver Morell & Jonas Hollingworth, Oct 2013

Slabby route in V-shaped groove. Thin seam provides good pro using nuts and cams. Be careful of loos blocks at bottom, and use good foot work to reach top.

Follow playboy to top slab and trend left to reach bolts

Start 2m left of ‘Penthouse’ on a small white triangle painted on the rock and go straight up the corner onto a blank-looking slab. Climb the first 2 slabs staying left of the bolts then up the right side of slab 3 and traverse left with hands across the top. Move further around the side and up, with a reachy move to finish. 8 RB to DBB. Don’t drop on the heads of climbers on ‘Playboy’. Alternate finish – from the last RB head right and finish at the top of ‘Penthouse’.

FA: J. Hollingworth & O. Morell, Aug 2013

Follow carrots to large block at top, and do interesting moves to reach anchors. To climb at grade 18, stick left of carrots and avoid large jugs to the right.

Same as for Penthouse, but go slightly right at the top, not all the way right. Small/ medium cams can be used to protect the last 4m or so of the climb.

Great warm up route, or beginner route. Bulge at midway may test some climbers.

Really good beginner route.

Straight up to 3rd bolt. Head left to gain the 4th, then a balancy traverse right to the large angled handhold and the top.

The second bolt requires a 90 degree bolt plate (a 45 will slip right off when you climb above it).
