Pillar Ridge** HS 4b
[Pillar Ridge, 2 kb]20m, 2 pitches. A classic from way back when (the begining of the 20th century). Climb the crack in the front of the buttress to a possible stance, then step out right and climb the thinner crack that leads rapidly to a groove and then the final arete. © ROCKFAX

Palindrome - 2nd - Mar/12

An interesting climb with a tricky start, and a bizarre move off the block. Rather green made it feel more like a hard hs 4c
lizzyb - 2nd O/S - 02/Nov/11 with Neil (manchester)

Tricky moves at the start and on top of the first block.

Lots of variety. First crack is awkward, second thin crack feels like it wants to swing you off and final slab has no gear but is quality. Really enjoyable.
