Two rests on the rope to get the crux in order. No skin and a bit of damp in the upper section prevented the lead attempt. Will be back. Again.

Hard. Couldn't work out the crux first go. Will be back due to its alluring masochistic charm.

Not charming - just hard. Got spanked. Al gave it a solid effort.

Bloody hell! Yorkshire grits answer to the vice aka well harder. Placing gear was really strenuous no let ups. Good fun though in a masochistic sort of way and still felt like an achievement topping out regardless of the many rests.

I took multiple falls at the crux and in the end gave up. In my last attempt I passed the crux, so next time, hopefully. What a route! E1 5c in the definitive guidebook (2012?), but I felt this was harder than Emerald Crack (Chatsworth) E3 6a!

Utter spanking dealt out by a Joe Brown classic. Must come back for more punishment and with more time available.

Fantastic route. The rockfax grade of e2 5c seems about right.

One of Joe Brown's forays into Yorkshire. Took 3 visits to crack this one but knowing where the hidden hold is helps - I didn't! My guide book has it as E1 5b - felt more like 6a.
