70m, 3 pitches. III/IV - Right of Blue John Rib are a couple more ribs, with scooped faces in between. The first scooped face is 'Central Route', with most of the difficulties provided by a shale band just below the ledge, with steep turf to the top thereafter. Sometimes it can be climbed direct when a small amount of ice allows

Good climbing - luckily the turf on the crux is well frozen but things soften quickly as the sun rises.

Pretty good - steep crux wall. Turf fortunately good.

Took a reasonably direct line up the middle of the right hand half of the main face. not sure if this is the 'Mam Tor righ-hand' that came up in the pick-list or not. More loose shale than I expected, given the recent low temperatures, but the turf was well frozen. Worth doing because of where it is (i.e. close to home and prominent in the landscape but have to admit that if it was in a 'proper' winter climbing area, I wouldn't have gone up it

Climbed the central of the three ribs. Thawing badly by 10:00 and jibbed left below the final wall.
