Grinshill - Middle Rocks Slip Wall Left
A brilliant mix of quality medium grade problems on good rock with a magic setting especially on summer evenings
From the Corbett Woods parking, walk back out of the car park and take a left down the access road.
Follow the road, down to just before the school house, then turn back on yourself on to the main track heading up hill to the beacon trig point.
At the second telegraph pole take a small path right down through the trees arriving at the west end of Middle Rocks (overhang wall).
|1||Top Traverse||5||L-R following a high break line of good holds and jugs, the hardest section comes in the middle when you’re highest.|
|2||Frog Leg Traverse||6A||L-R staying low at all times gradually increasing in difficulty to a very thin finish along parallel cracks stepping onto a block.|
|3||Abba||4||Start below two slot pockets pulling up to the top but don’t finish direct (loosedusty ground) but finish diagonally leftward on a ledge.|
|4||Up The Wall||4||Follow the leftward crack to the top.|
|5||Buzz||4||A thin crack splits into a Y at half height. Follow the left fork with your hands past breaks finish by stepping left.|
|6||Slip||5+||Climb the correct sequence this is an excellent micro problem. Using the thumb pocket (right hand), left hand in the sloping crack move up to the round sloper on the break (right hand) little finger on sharp edge not allowed, finish on the spike (left hand).|
|7||Wo Tang||4||Steep wall climbing. Start below the green mottled slabby wall, upto the roof, don’t use the cracks on the left or right, continue straight up the gently overhanging wall on improving holds.|
