[Adam sending Desperate Dan @ Ilkley, 2 kb]The arching left arete of the front face of The Cow is accessed from a useful boulder. It gives tenuous laybacking above an extremely unfriendly landing. The given grade stands even with the use of the substantial padding that is normal nowadays. © ROCKFAX
