It is a bold route that takes the line of least resistance up an almost hidden slab. It requires a confident lead for the steady 5b leader and is best approached by abseil.

New E3 for Ben Crom 25/4/11



Ben Crom gets a new E3. On the 25/4/2011 Craig Hiller added an excellent new route to Round Gully. The line looked naturally clean and was originally attempted onsight though a fall soon sorted that out and the onsight vanished. The crux is moving through a short steep section and gaining a slab followed by an airy top out on an amazing arete feature. Craig has several other lines cleaned and ready to go so watch this space.
