Around the corner and right of Professor Plum... is a four bolt route that ascends an overhanging wall in a corner. This is Silmarillion, and it is a pumpy task on cobbles and pockets. For some reason, this line seemed very insecure, perhaps because nearly every move is 5.11, reachy, pumpy, and on a steep wall. It is an excellent addition by the CWC headline team.
Quickdraws and a rope.

This is now one of my favorite routes in CWC. Excellent, bouldery start on slopey crimps. Nice jugs to pull the roof and easy climbing on the headwall to the anchors. Did this on top rope. Haven't been able to link the whole thing, but was able to work all of the moves the first time on the route. Got shut down on the roof. Now I got the beta and am just waiting to go back to send the sucka. The start is a bit intimidating and very committing as it has a horrible landing.***

This is a three-star route in my book--a great sport route, and a bit burly for the rating.

Watch out for the trees. Some trail maintenance would be in good order. Wish I lived closer.
