Javelin Wall

(7 routes)

The Javelin Wall is the light grey coloured wall left and higher than the Twin Cracks Wall. The best approach is to go to the base of the scree below Twin Cracks Wall and take the tagged track which starts on the far left of the scree. Where the gully runs out below a steep wall climb follow track hard R to the start of some fixed ropes When the track regains the ridge traverse L on a faint track to below Javelin. There is a 30 Metre rap a short way down from Javelin back to the top of the gully.

  Start up the left corner then move out onto the crack up the centre of the slab, takes wires and small to large cams. 30 rap to an easy scramble down.
