[Julian Heath, The Spider, 8a, SirPlum buttress, Cheedale, 3 kb]40m. A major route tackling the roof at its widest point which gives good moves separated by decent rests and the odd bit of dodgy rock. The best positioned sport route in the Peak! It is usually done in one huge (40m) pitch but then lowered-off in stages. © ROCKFAX
