Long Wall Right

(10 routes)

The Long Wall is the most popular wall at Baring Head. Facing west, it catches the afternoon sun so is normally dry and pleasant. It offers a good variety of routes and a mixture of grades.

1 Sticky VM
Gets climbed frequently as it looks like an easy line but it’s actually more awkward than sharing a elevator with your ex! Climb the crack. Finish either straight up or veer right onto the good scoop/block.
2 Styley VM
A very elegant little pillar. Climb directly up to the scoop using a high step-up and a long reach. The next move is fun too – get a couple of good side-pulls and do a high-step onto the scoop.
3 The Bulge VM
An awkward little climb, this bulge always seems to be a bit short on holds. Climb straight up any way possible.
A The Final Pump V3
A killer workout. Climb The Bulge, then traverse left with hands just over the lip. Finish up Leap For It.
4 Slopey V0
Traverse right form the alcove to gain two sloping holds over the bulge. A long reach back will net you a good hold. Now perform a mantel or high step-up.
5 Short Crack VM
Hand jam or layback the crack. Or choose life!
6 The Corner VE
A popular ascent and descent route.
7 Bucket Route VM
A good series of jugs. Alternately, veer diagonally left following a series of sloping edges in the crack.
8 Easy Wall VE
Very pleasant. Start at the left end of a low slab: head straight up, using a pinch in the crack to get over the bulge. Good holds appear just as you need them.
9 Middle Wall VE
Climb the middle of the wall, using a couple of side-pulls near the bottom.
