If thats grade IV then i must go back to the drawing board! Found it both more serious & challenging than bowfell butress. Great.
manmike - Lead O/S - 31/Jan/10 with moose ridd, Jason
Defiantly lacked the climbing technique to tackle this chimney. Lots of bridging and dry tooling needed. Must try harder.

Luke lead the approach to the route, the initial part of Clark Gable, in 2 pitches. The crux sequence of this route was long and desperate dry-tooling. Gear was OK, if not brilliant, although one would never like to fall off, it being a narrow chimney route. It took 2 hours or longer for me to lead, and it was my hardest mixed climbing ever (I am not sure if the route was in condition, though). I, as well as my second, thought the top pitch is qualified as a solid grade III. The crux pitch was waaay harder than that! The fact my second, who leads up to HVSs, hung on the rope in many occasions says something.
