5 Silver Lining

Pad up the centre of the lovely clean slab left of Silver Bullet.

Trad 35m
8 Silver Bullet

The huge slabby corner which is essentially the approach ramp for 'Solar City' and 'Werewolf'.

FA: John Chapman, 1976

Trad 40m
21 Solar City

Not quite as good as it looks but still not a bad route up the orange wall up left from 'Werewolf'.

Scramble up 'Silver Bullet' and find a belay ledge part-way. From here, continue up 'Silver Bullet' until you can step right onto the wall to gain the seam (some people can span this move, others may need to jump to the jug). The rock quality in the middle of the route detracts, as does the sit down rest in the cave. You can build a belay from the cave and walk off, or do the exciting overhang (which is over very quickly).

23 R As You Like It

The face between 'Werewolf' and 'Solar City' has very fiddly gear.

Start: Start from 'Silver Bullet', midway between 'Solar City' and 'Werewolf'.

FA: Chris Shepherd & Allan Adams, 1982

Trad 20m
20 Werewolf

The lovely corner up the right wall of 'Silver Bullet' was probably the hardest climb in 'Victoria' in its day.

It's probably best to belay from the ground but some parties insist on scrambling up a few metres to belay at the very base of the line.

FA: Daryly Carr & Rob Taylor, 1966

Trad 24m
25 The Trial

Epic route-finding, but most people would ignore the indirect start described here and start up 'Tribulation'.

Start on arete right of 'Werewolf', aiming to eventually climb the hanging corner high on the arete.

FA: Mark Moorhead & Jon Muir, 1981

Trad 35m
26 Tribulation

Boulder up seam past bolt to good ledge; there's actually 2, an old carrot and new FH placed for 'The Vampire' and it seems you can either go direct past the FH or go slightly right via the carrot.. Continue to jug just left of 'Colour Scheme' then go left a little and up headwall.

Start: Start at seam 3 metres right of 'The Trial'.

FA: Kim Carrigan, 1984

24 Colour Scheme

The lovely orange wall is pretty hard for the grade. Start as for Full Moon, then left and up past knifeblade.

FA: Chris Shepherd, 1981

26 Monochrome

Up Color Scheme to the pin, then move right to the rail. Straight up to join Goodbye.

FFA: Christopher Glastonbury, 22 Aug 2022

  1. 18m (16) As for 'Full Moon' to a ledge at 18 metres.

  2. 22m (23) Bulging wall to left, between 'Goodbye' and Let's Get Pissed to ledge. Left along ledge then right to finish up smooth grey wall just left of Let's Get Pissed.

16 Full Moon

Two good pitches with quite a hard start.

  1. 40m (16) There are two ways to reach the layback flake, either head up left from the base of the wide crack or climb directly up the pocketed slab. Follow the layback flake to face above on right and now up and right to main corner. A good ledge at 18 metres can be a good belay. The corner gives easy climbing to a ledge where it ends.

  2. 35m (12) Straight up steeply for 5 metres then up wall above, starting on right.

FA: Keith Egerton & John Chapman, 1976

  1. 40m (16) As for 'Full Moon', belay on ledge below a short steep wall.

  2. 15m (13) Across left on ledge to front of buttress, where a beautiful little corner leads to terrace.

21 Red Zinger

Thin moves left to base of flake then hard moves lead to roof. Traverse right to exit crack. Chossy rock to finish.
