[Adam Ondra At Malham, 3 kb]25m. A historically significant classic of great difficulty. The climbing is extremely sustained and technical with only the odd poor rest. Originally the route finished at the halfway ledge, subsequent ascents have ended at the rest above the crux. © ROCKFAX
The free ascent of the old aid route "Controversey"
FA. Mark Leach 1988. A superb ascent after many day's of effort to produce a route as hard as any in the World at the time.
