Unconquerable Area

    Grade: 4b | First Ascent: -1995
    Rating: 0

    At the right-hand side of the wall there is a wide curving crack. Climb this, then surmount the overlap to a good hold and finish just right of the arĂȘte.

  • 25 - Right Unconquerable

    Grade: 4c | First Ascent: (Pre-1975)
    Rating: 1

    Start three metres to the left, at a big block below the flake. Climb the V-crack and the right-slanting flake to the top.

    Start on the left where the ground rises. Pull over the left end of an overlap and make a long reach to a flake, then up right to finish.
