Very nice! A microcam can be placed under the roof to avoid a bad fall in the traverse. Good holds, more phisical

Fantastic. Not sure why it's P2 in the Yorkshire Grit guide, good gear throughout. Small cam under the roof helps but not essential. The mantle finish felt like the hardest move to me!

Great VS. If this was at Stanage, it would have have 10 times as many ascents and be more polished and ruined because of it. Go do it. Very worthwhile.

Great climb! A bit scary across the short traverse to the lay off flake but hey! I get scared watching snooker :) Good "tat" at the top + plenty of solid tree routes. No need to anchor to the private fence. Your practically sat in someones garden at the top, no more than 6m from someones kitchen. So communication with your belay/second should be worked on prior to climbing so your not shouting down "BRING MY BACCI UP!" All in all a fantastic lead. :D

Attempted this earlier in the year and couldn't get past the flake near the top. Seconded it clean this time. The corners and traverse to the flake is tricky. Some of the rock is very loose and some holds have disappeared. Hard work but definitely worth its 3 stars.

Watch out for the stroppy lady at the top. According to the mouthful I got, the fence cost thousands and isn't owned by the council!! She wanted me to remove the slings that the belay and next climber was connected to!! Give her her due, someone had broken one of the flimsy uprights.
