A few days ago I did the awesome Defender of the Faith Alternative left finish (20).It's a great single 50m
pitch which you rap into then climb out of. About 8m left of this face route is a landmark right facing
corner which is clean and about handcrack size. The top of Defender Alt Finish traverses left into this
corner fo the last 15m or so. I rapped in and also climbed this 50m long corner and found it very very
good. Great rock quality, mega exposure and awesome solid trad gear. I couldn't find any mention of this
pitch in the current 1996 guidebook. Does anyone know what it is?
Simey is correct - it is bannister's rush 21. It has a bolt way down low before you get into the corner. It's a 55m pitch which starts maybe 15m below the corner, just above a small roof/overlap, on a small footledge.
I'll second Defender variant finish being a great pitch, very under rated IMO. Photos here - Banister's Rush is 5m past the climber in the final two shots.
