A great outing through some impressive territory.
1) 4a, 12m. Climb the flake-crack up the right-hand side of the huge flake of The Pedestal to a sitting stance (low belays) on its top. Starting up the left-hand side of the flake ups the overall grade to S 4a.
2) 3c, 16m. Reverse off the end of the ledge then traverse left and up to the left-hand corner of the great roof. To stop the rope jamming, try fixing a runner out left to direct it away from the crack, then pull over the bulge and finish up the deep groove. © Rockfax
