One of the best mixed routes in the UK
Having climbed this route back in 2004 with Steve Long ( the third ascent ) its now apparent that this is an uber classic. After another two ascents over the last two weeks , these climbers also raving in regards its quality
EL MANCHO VI-7
is the one to do.
It has two really cracking pitches with the top being superb. First done by Si Panton of Ground Up fame alongside L Mkinley some years back the word is now out.
The route follows a line left of Manx Wall on Clogwyn Ddu and joins Manx Wall on the belly flop move ready for the top wall. This route is a 4 star route and is often in condition.
