|The Golden Mile||E5 6b|
|Vying with Supersonic on High Tor as the best E5 on Peak limestone; but this one is almost a full grade harder. E3 5c climbing leads up the groove with good holds and adequate protection to a rest ledge on the right (bomber crucial nuts). Now climb deviously and determinedly up and left to pockets (in-situ thread) below the sloping ledge. Getting established on this is difficult and leads to a semi-rest, but beware, the upper wall climbed from left to right has taken many scalps. Traverse left to the Mortlock's belay or continue up Apocalypse. © ROCKFAX|
