Rockfax Description
An excellent combination that gives a great way across the slab combining the amazing main pitch of Concrete Chimney, with the last pitch of Dream... Start by abseiling down to belay above the first pitch of Wen, or climb Wen to this point.
1) 5b, 55m. Move up and left across the ledges to just right of the arete. Above and left is an incipient crack, gain this and follow it to a steepening, which coincides with larger holds on bubbly rock. Move through the weirdness to ledges that lead up and left to the same often-busy belay of Dream....
2) 4c, 40m. As for Dream... © Rockfax
