Prophets of Pragmatism 45m E8 6b **. Iain Small, Dave MacLeod (both led).
12 Jun 2018.
A serious pitch with poor protection until high up, but good climbing, cutting
through the long traverse of Prophet of Purism. Start up Salome for 7m and
arrange runners. Climb rightwards across the wall with difficulty to a good hold
and dubious runners. Move up the wall to gain large sidepull pockets and follow
these (avoiding a loose flake) to reach jugs and assortment of runners (Cams in
pockets and poor wires). Step up and left and make hard moves up the bulging
wall (crux) to a welcome pocket that takes a good Camalot 3. Continue up to a
further pocket (Camalot 4 and wire) and then move right, then up on small holds,
then back left to a break (good wire). Move up and left on good holds to gain the
ramp of Big Top. Follow Big Top to the belay ledge.
