West Pennant - Heffalump





1. Heffalump V5
Begin on jug, climb arete on edges and crimps, pop to lip and milk the topout on slopers not quite as good as you'd like. Delightful.

2. Double Crossed V 10
Start as for Heffalump, but pull through edges and sidepulls making tenuous and cool moves up and left to gain lip. Multiple betas exist. (FA Nick Sagar 2004)



3. Phase III / Phase VIII SDS
Straight up small dihedral on the right of the feature. Starts sitting or standing. (FA Nick Sagar 2006)

4. Hit and Run V11
Start as for "Phase III" and link into "Access Denied" (FA G. Losier 2006)

5. Access Denied V 9/10 SDS
Hard, tension moves, heavy hands on sharp crimpers. Very technical with a close to a dozen moves on an 8 foot problem. Good things come in small packages. (FA Nick Sagar 2004)

6. Deeper Understanding V9

Start at "Access Denied" and grind your way left across blank slopey lip until you gain access to the obvious jug about 8 feet left. Slopey lip traverses only get less fun as the grade increases. (FA Nick Sagar 2006)


Around the corner, to the right of Heffalump.

7. Insufficient Funds V4
Tricky high thin slab. Fun if slab is your thing. (FA Adam Benjamin 2012)



8. Crack V0
Not the best destination for novice climbers...


9. Look to Windward SDS V12 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gB6cv0wfByQ
Very technical compression moves on impossibly blank bulge to crux bump to good edge and dynamic finish. (FA Ben Smith 2013)
