Passing the crux on the FA of Blood Crystal, 5.10b...

Description 

The east coast is nothing in comparison to the west, but when if the weather is beating the western side of the island the cliffs on the eastern side can provide some shelter, and there are a few worthwhile climbs to be found.

Getting There 

Walk east from the middle of the island and drop down onto the grassy slopes. The crags are scattered along these slopes.

Just before reaching the arete step back left and continue up to the ledge and belay.2. Continue on up the easy corner to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
