/ Attermire (victoria cave)
does anyone know the state of the sport routes at attermire scar (victoria cave) (http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=602). I've not been there before but there seem to be a few starred routes worthy of a visit or 2. I cannot see any ascents on ukc or rockfax for some time so i don't know if the bolts or rock has been climbed recently and is still in good condition?
Went a couple of years ago - the bolts on Sven Vath and Lost In Thought And Lost In Time were fine then and I can't see them having changed much since then. As for the rock, there was the odd slightly shattered/flaky looking bit so probably worth a little care (especially given this last winter) but in general it seemed solid.
I only had one quick dog up it, but LITALIT felt like one of the best sport routes I've been on in the Dales - great varied climbing and a tremendous position on the headwall above the cave. Worth a visit - if you don't like it then it's not that far to walk back and drive round to Yew Cogar or Kilnsey.
