Sweet Baby James


Sweet Baby James – HVS 5a**

58m, 2 pitch.

A delicate slab climb taking the overlap on the left of the triangular overhang. 

  1. 40m 5a. Climb a faint groove beneath the large roof, trending left to bypass some bulges, until beneath the main slab. Climb this past crucial cams to an overlap and step left to a ledge. Step up and traverse thoughtfully back right to the edge of the buttress to a large hold.  Continue delicately up to an overlap; then go left via a ramp into a corner.  Climb a groove more easily and belay at the massive block to the left of the Will o’the Wisp tree belay. 

  2. As for pitch 6 of Will o’the Wisp.
