Chosspile - Wall of Aglarond

Postby Stijn » Tue Jan 26, 2010 1:58 pm

I climbed at this crag for the first time two weeks ago and noticed some gaps in the wiki route guide. Does anybody have details about the name/grade/quality of the following routes?

- To the right (and around the arete) of Aragorn is the Unknown 22/23 in the wiki
- Even further to the right, around another arete (still left of Sauron) is a steep and tall looking route with a 22 scratched into the rock about 5m up. It's got rusty-looking u-bolts so must be one of the original routes.
- Immediately right of this is a long, easy-angled chimney & slab, apparently about grade 11/12. Shiny new hangers on this one. This route is about 5m to the left of Sauron.

The Harry Potter Wiki finally makes some sense thanks to Tapster - let's get this one sorted as well?

Hi

The 22 to the left is Smeegle (I think), which goes up a short steep arete with an overhang about 1/3 of the way up. This name is faint on the rock just near the first bolt. The easy line just to the right of this is Middle Earth 12, which was opened about 2 years ago.

Thanks Neil - I've updated the wiki. Feel free to add first ascensionist details if you know them.
