Grade Route

Great climbing, great position and good protection. Start at the left-hand end of the Terrace.

  1. Up a few metres to a sloping ledge then left to the arete and follow it to the top.

The original finish to Trojan War.

The first half is quite good, but the second half of the original route should be avoided (and probably can be by climbing up a broken crack in the top wall).

Up the open corner and cracks in the middle of The Terrace onto a small grassy ledge. For the original route, scramble up into a v-slot and continue up in or near the corner. Alternative finish looks possible up broken cracks or the arete left of the v-slot.

Up the ramp, then crack. Follow the V-groove left, then left again and up a finger crack to the top.

Take the line of least resistance off The Terrace, starting at the right-hand end.

1 19 12m
2 19 20m
  1. 12m (19) Climb the first 3 metres of wooden horse (15), then follow the left diagonal crack. step right at the large horizontal break, and continue up the thin twin cracks. Small nuts needed. Belay from the ledge.

  2. 20m (16) Direct start: on the left hand edge of the ledge up the obvious crack. stay on the left crack for 10m until arriving at the steep face with an overhanging boulder. traverse left 3m then follow path of least resistance to top (19) Or go straight up, takes a small cam (0.1-0.3), this is a committing finish.

  1. (17) Start as for Helen, at the horizontal break about 7m up take the thin diagonal left crack to the ledge. Good gear all the way.

  2. (17) From the ledge follow the crack about 2-3m to the right of the left hand edge of the ledge. The crack which goes up then left for 2m then up to the top. This pitch is significantly harder (and more contrived) if climbed without using the crack of helen 1.5m to the left. Good gear all the way.
