Rockfax Description
A fine climb with a chequered history. Start by the stump and climb up the easy stuff until things blank out, once the sight of a bolted on flake-hold. Crank past this and keep going through the final roof to reach the top. Drop back down and lower off the last bolt. © Rockfax

FA. Mark Pretty, Robin Barker 1991. Nigel Slater climbed the route as The Tea Monster in 1990. His dubious bolted-on flake had a short life.

Ticklists: Classic Hard Peak Limestone, Peak limestone north graded list - sport.

So glad to get this done. Being so steep it was my complete anti style, as such it felt hard for the grade and took more sessions than any other route I've tried to date.

Poor conditions, but the moves are coming together

Yippee. Ben Moon tactics, had a half hour snooze in the dust before tying in.

Pumpy number, hopefully feel easier next time when I know where the holds are

Great fun, 3 really enjoyable sessions. Nice to both do it one after the other as well.

bar a false start on the slab by the first bolt, only took 2 trys, really nice route and sustain throughout.

Found it hard - maybe just conditions dependent, but it took 3 visits.

Too steep for me! Arms repeatedly failed on top wall but hopefully do better with a bit more in the tank later.
