A pleasant route up an airy rib. Start below a crack leading through a short steep section behind a boulder.
1) 13m. Make a hard pull off the boulder onto the overhanging face and step up to better hand and foot holds. Carry on up more easily to reach the ledge with a rowan tree.
2) 30m. Move left and head up the airy rib to the left of the quartz-covered slab. At the block, head up the rounded rib to a block belay on a long ledge.
3) 7m. Move right along the ledge to the corner and climb this to the top. © Rockfax
UKC Logbook Description
The Rowan tree from the first belay is gone.
The traditional start is at a nose/rib between two small gullies. This requires a very strenuous pull onto the nose. The problem is you need to be very strong, able to lock off on your left arm and have telescopic arms to reach the next jug. Not what you expect on a V Diff! In addition, although the move is well protected by a large wire, if things go wrong the landing is very unpleasant and will almost certainly be on your back. To climb the route at V diff standard use the following variation. Further left from the left-hand chimney is a low angled slab decorated with 2 or 3 heather bushes. Climb this until it is possible to follow a ramp line rightwards eventually joining the main rib. Continue up to the belay ledge, where the rowan tree used to be.Africa Rib Craig Yr Ysfa
