From a Distance*** E7 6b
[Stennis Ford. Climbers on From a Distance and Mysteries., 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
Originally climbed with some bits of drilled gear, the right-hand side of the smooth wall now gives an awesome route which has become surprisingly popular (F7c). Start at a thin crack below and right of the smooth wall (as for Hysteria). Climb the crack for 5m then move left to a ledge. Attack the desperate crack above to gain some reasonable but hard-earned protection. Move left to a thread and a rest - crucial runner in slot to back-up thread. Climb up above then make a difficult undercut traverse rightwards and move back left to two threads. Move up into some scoops (old pegs - not crucial) above then climb the wall to a wide crack which leads to Mysteries. Finish direct up the headwall which is still taxing. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Edit: The "old pegs - not crucial" are currently (summer 2012) "single shiny peg" not sure when it was put in though. Jacob.

Psyched! Brilliant route, good climbing all the way. Ground up, third go. First attempt was unlucky slip, second was pumped but went fine on the third. Mega

Ground up second go. Had a bit of a moment on the flash attempt and jumped for the thread at the top of the runout! Good beta from Jacob.
