Awfull route

with Dale

For those with a penchant for the myriad horrors of Peak Limestone, this route should be very appealing, despite the modest grade.

Went left to the tree to top out rather than the tottering blocks. Then clawed up vertical grass to a good belay on a thread and two friends.

Easy glimbing. very blocky top half Belay options are zero! There is a nest of ravens close by at the fop too.

Easy warm up. Climb through an old ravens nest and past a hidden current one. By the time you reach it it's too late to go round. Zero safe belay options close by.

Hideous climb. I have just registered my vote for "Bag of ...."

Graeme Hammond 13/May/12 2nd O/S

didn't think this was too bad... a nice start and good bridging above allows you to avoid pulling on too many of the blocks. Grass bit is fine feet on solid rock one move up onto a grass ledge.

First lead on Limestone for ages. First half was excellent and well-protected however the second half squirms past some dubiously-balanced blocks. Grassy top-outs are not my favourite either :-/

jon bradley 15/May/10 Lead O/S

Worrying blocks at the top.

Dangerous blocks at the finish spoil what would otherwise be an unpolished 2* severe with good gear.

Quite liked the route, but as with other routes here the steep grass at the top caused the most concern!
