UKH

65m, 3 pitches. Follows the summer line of the Sword of Damocles. Crux is the last pitch, although the lakes winter guide states the 2nd pitch as being the hardest.

1) climb to the back of the pinnacle (either from the left or (harder) from the right)and then follow the bold grove up and right over a bulge. Traverse back left and belay in the groove. (6)


2) 15m The Main Pitch. Climb the Groove, passing a bulge on the left to a belay.

3) 20m Climb the flake crack which proves strenuous, but there is a rest at the end! move right up easy ground.
