Indecent Exposure*** 7b+
[Indecent Exposure, Raven Tor. Hilary fights her way through a forest of ropes. Note old in situ gear in 1989, and THE tree., 3 kb]35m. Climb up the awkward bottom wall to the break, then pull over a bulge and continue up a large chalked-up flake. (Stick clip the second staple for the 7b+ tick if the bottom is wet). Move up to undercuts and rightwards to climb a short fingery section. Then head back left and up to the break. Continue up the pumpy groove above to a high lower-off (28m). When very dry you can do the start to Barely Decent and move right at 7b+ for the full route from the ground. If you climb to the top of the crag from here then you've done The Full Monty, 7c+. Originally the route used the stance on The Prow and then swung round the hanging arete to the right (E5 6a) to access the top of the crag - this was the pitch that gave the route its name. FA.
