English Summer Daze

Type: 
Rock
Description: 
Begin 100m upstream and uphill from the prominent bulgy face with a roof at top on true left of Twin Stream. Grade 18, 18, 18 with ledges at end of each pitch. The second pitch heads out left and climbs around the edge of an enormous flake - exciting climbing! A direct second pitch was climbed with Dave Brash at grade 17. Scramble a short distance down the slope to a spike and rap 30 m down to the top of an adjacent buttress. Another 45 m rap off another spike will land you on a ledge system. Follow this around to the start of the route.
