Cemetery Gates 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Europe : United Kingdom : ... : Dinas Cromlech
Very airy and ballsy route for its day. Surprisingly climbed before Cenotaph Corner. Steep, exposed and strenuous.1) 110ft 5.9. A sensational pitch. Up the arete and bear left into the crack up this then the wall above on generally good holds, no room for error though, onto a ledge and belay (nuts).2) 60ft 5.8. Step right and climb the steep, steep arete and around a little to the right, then up to finish. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
