Please avoid damaging fences - use the stiles provided. Historically there were access problems here, partially as a result of liability concerns and also due to damage to fences, but these appear to be resolved at this time.

There has been significant rock fall across this area over the past few years, climbers should check the route and be aware of more collapsing rock. Routes that have been affected are Septuagenarian, Guillotine, Wusty Wolf and possibly the start of Fool’s Gold.

 

 

Rockfax Description
An interesting flake feature 4m right of Fool's Gold. Climb up around the blunt arete to gain the thin flake and a spike (first real gear). Follow the flake left into Fool's Gold and finish up this. © Rockfax

βeta: broken hold now just before you reach the spike, makes for a better hold & possible hook. The move up to the spike is now longer and harder though.
