Lucifer's Hammer** 6b

Rockfax Description
40m. No further details are known about this long pitch. It is claimed that a 70m rope will get you down but take great care. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
A brilliant but improbable looking 6c wall climb. Belay at the stance at the top of the ramp from where you can just get down on a 60m rope but a 70 is safer.

Absolutely stunning route, possibly the best route I've done to date. perfect moves on perfect rock and a final post crux romp up to the chains made the perfect end to the trip.
