Silent Wall


Situated about 100m further on than Black Wall right, this bay of rock is easily reached by the obvious fisherman's path: it lies about 300m before the building atop the cliffs. It has a handful of good little routes.

1.Nick's Corner HVS 5a the obvious corner

OK Squire(6a+) excellent slab just right

3.Freeloader's Arete (6a+) the right-hand side of the slab

4.It's oh so Quiet (6b) * the arete gained from the left with a tricky start move. Add a plus for the short

5.Noisiness (6b) the unusual open groove line.

6.Bedlam (6b) a leftwards line via a technical slab and crimpy finishing wall

White Noise (6c+) ** the arete taken on its left-hand side with some smart 'fridge hugging' above the overlap. Excellent and tough for the grade.
