The Ganges – 5.11a (trad)


The second route was climbed on May 16 by Harry Young and Jason Green and also goes at 5.11c. The five-pitch route is called The Ganges and starts with a 5.9 corner pitch that leads to a 5.11a splitter face crack that leads to an undercling move around a block.
The third pitch is the first 5.11c crux with laybacks through an airy overhanging section with good finger locks and protection. Pitch four is a 5.10d stem, which was followed with The Pitch in the Woods on the first ascent.

    thought 2nd & 3rd pitch were equally difficult, felt around 11b for me but both were pretty wet!

    Not 11.c

    rested on 2nd pitch. 11c pitch felt more like 10c/d.
