It is Liquid Ambar
perhaps most correctly Liquidambar.
I've a bit read about this on Chris Doyles blog over the last few weeks. Pete must be chuffed to have finally got it after all that effort.
I see on the north wales limestone wiki that this got an upgrade to 8c+...
You should look up the history of the route.
Feel free to delete your post once you have :)
That's brilliant. Been reading Doylo's blog a bit too.
I really like the photos, so obvious how happy he is to be at the top and a homage shot the same as the old Jerry one too.

When did Jerry change the name then - all the publicity way back then was spelt Amber.
I'm pretty sure it was (rightly or wrongly) 'Liquid Amber' in the mags when Richard Simpson did it a few years ago (2000ish?). Anyway... a fine effort whatever it's called!
It had been spelt wrongly for years. Jerry's biography, published early this year, cleared up what the real route name was.

lol!!! - i see you chose not to delete!
Great to see this getting another repeat. Well done!
Amazing effort, Pete is a true beast and inspiration.
duh, only just realised what you did there Andy. hangs head in shame. :) To be a pedant, he's probably leaning to the right of over the moon :)
Typically, Jerry told me it was Liquid Ambar, with an 'A'.
"Bloody stupid mags have been spelling it wrong for years."
"Although I think I might have told them that it was spelt with an 'E'."
Brilliant effort Pete.
