[ A distant shot of Ian Blakeley near the top of Midnight Cowboy., 2 kb]17m. A magnificently situated pitch above everything! From the tree move right and climb the steep wall to good wires and a tricky move onto the easier angled ramp. At the top of the ramp access the flake crack and finish by another testing move. © ROCKFAX
