|200m, 3 pitches. |
200m. This area of the crag is often in condition when everything else has been stripped off. North Gully itself has a 50m. grade 3 pitch leading to a small bay. Another short pitch leads to a bay beneath a very steep section of chock stones and jammed boulders. Under modern day conditions this pitch looks very hard (no specific details of it having been climbed). A good alternative is to traverse left onto E buttress after the first pitch. Next an easy pitch of about 45m leads to the top of the buttress. From here there is an excellent slabby groove line leading up left at about grade 3. Another easy pitch leads to the top near the summit of Dow Crag. © ROCKFAX
