In reply to Bulls Crack: yeah. 5b-A3-4c. in the limestone guide. Apparently used to be one of the "big 3" on yorkshire limestone.

Yeah. Did it about 30 yrs ago. Reasonably loose first pitch, then good second pitch across undulating roof. Most of the pegs were in place, didn't have to place much myself. God knows what its like now. Think we abbed off after the roof. Did in the middle of winter. Would be a very bad idea to do it if any tourists are below.

In reply to GeoffG: Cheers. Sounds like fun. Will deffinitely make sure its a non-tourist day. Will take some pegs and see what happens.

It would be a seriously BAD idea to try this route in the summer unless you want to kill some tourist and get climbing in Gordale banned... in my opinion.

The area underneath this route is exactly where folks stand to take photos of the waterfall.

Take care.

In reply to dunnyg: Abseiled down to it a couple years back to film someone coming across the overhang and it is all downward pointing flakes. Every now and again one came out and fell towards the watching hoards below. They scattered just like ants. Amazing to view!
