Sinners Wall

 

Situated about 200m further on than Black Wall right, this bay of rock is easily reached by the obvious fisherman's path: it lies about 200m before the building atop the cliffs. It has a handful of good little routes.

1. Devil May Care (6c+) the left wall via some very long moves.

2. Transgressor's Groove (5) the slabby corner has a short tricky section

3. Butcher's Slab (6a) the slabby wall with a tricky finale

4. RepentanceArete (6b+) the right-hand side of the arete gained from the corner on the right

5. Stepped Corner (6b) just that and awkward

6. Sin Bin (6b) the arete, mantelshelf and face with a long reach to the belay

Scintillate (6a+) the obvious flake to join Sin Bin at the ledge.

Forgiveness (6b) huge clacite crystal lead to a steep flake and joining Sin Bin after roof.

7. Father
Confessor (6b) the pillar/arete to a horrible finish

Sin fear (4+) Corner crack, nice bridging. Belay can be gained WITHOUT USE OF LARGE JAMMED BLOCKS IN CHIMNEY.

8. Sinbad (6b) the stepped roof with a balancy section on the slab

9. Sinus (6b) another of the same with a hard start

10. Synthesizer Slab (6b) * the lovely delicate slab

Devilment (4) Short arete leading to pleasant stepped groove.

11. For ye who has sinned.... (6c) left-hand side of the lower wall with a hard move to finish

The Seven Deadly Sins (6c+) * line between the two after first bolt of Wages. Use belay on left.

12. Wages of Sin (6c+) * short intense wall with two difficult sections.

13. The Sinner Man (7b) a desperate sequence on small slots and a rounded finale. Harder for the short.
