Rockfax Description
Bold and precarious. From the right rib of the cave boulder up and right to a small ledge from where scary balance moves on the left lead to better holds and a rapid exit to the right. © Rockfax

Lots of ledges to stand on and think about what a silly boy you've been. 3 stars.

All there... you just have to link it together without freaking out. Great climb, awesome holds. Loved it.

Awesome route, although ballsy when you don't know what's coming! Will be back to lead it.

No one else at the crag so a bit gripping. Not too bad though.

I was shocked to hear Tim had died (sudden ill health). A gifted climber he lead this with no gear in a full length long flowing coat. Unsurprisingly, he donated five organs for five separate life saving transplant operations. As a Yorkshireman he would have hated anything going to waste! I shall long cherish my memories of him and the routes we did together.
