Rockfax Description
'Cloggy Corner' is comparable to Cenotaph Corner in quality and only slightly easier. It is often wet but can still be done since the jams are all sinkers.
1) 4c, 30m. Scramble up awkward ground, past grassy ledges to a belay below the corner. Can also be reached from Scorpio P1.
2) 5b, 35m. Climb the corner with one slight detour onto the left wall at around 6m. © Rockfax

βeta: cleaner than other routes on Cloggy at the time but would benefit from more ascents

βeta: Corner was very wet and at 25 feet I had to climb the right wall at 5b+. Much better than Cenotaph which I had done with Barry the preceding weekend. Graded HVS 5a at the time. Very sustained but utterly brilliant!
