Blackwell Halt Main Wall

The Main wall at Blackwell Halt

Most routes have been rebolted with good quality resin bolts.

The first two routes start from a high ledge on the left.

1. Micro Chip (6c+) Short but desperate for four moves.

2. Modem (6a+) Easiest on crag with two long reaches.

3. CD Romp (E2 5c) Trad. Start up the groove to the ledge then up the faint crack above.

9. Falling Icons (6c) Polished with a tough crux section.

10. She Got the Bosch, I Got the Drill (6b) More of the same but not reachy. Starts part way up slope.

11. Waste Bin (6a+) Via shallow groove

12. The Hacker (6c) ★ Difficult problem up the blank looking wall. Careful belaying required to avoid hitting the ledge.

13. E-mail (6a+) Another reach dependent route.
