[Martin on 'Fighting off the Vultures', 2 kb]20m. Climbs bolted line just left of Old Man of Moy to chain just under roof. 10 clips required. The first two bolts are bit spaced but fortunately as your arms tire the spacing becomes more amenable. A lot longer than the other routes alongside and it does seem to go on forever despite being just over 20 metres! Bolted by Andy Wilby
