Living Dead*** 7b
[Murray on Living Dead, 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
Precise, fingertip wall-climbing on superb crystalline edges builds to a final testing climax at the top of the pitch. Start just right of a left-trending broken ramp-line at the base of the face. Move up easy rock to a sloping ledge at 9m. Pull through the slim overlap above to a sidepull and continue up the wall to a resting ledge. Move slightly right and follow the steepening wall up a slight depression until a final hard sequence gains a ledge and lower-off 5m below the top of the crag. The top of the cliff can be gained via a short HVS 5a pitch. © ROCKFAX

Another run out to first bolt, brilliant thin climbing but again insight blown at top as couldn't find the holds fast enough in the blizzard of possiblilites.

Second go. Tried once in Jan 2011, felt tons easier this time. Old school but very good!

More sustained than Chiming for you as there is more harder climbing but no really hard bit.

Great rock
Pippa - Lead O/S - 11/Jun/11 with Richard

Excellent route. Second evening session on it, first redpoint attempt after a few dogging goes. Sunset ascent, and (whilst I'm told it looked smooth) very much by the skin of my teeth! The pale yellow tat tying off the peg was placed there today.
AJM - Lead RP - 09/Jun/11 with Charles Hubbard

3 goes. Tiring.
Chubbard - Lead dog - 09/Jun/11 with AJM

Tried once beofore a year or 2 ago. First go today after a false start. Fantastic route, better, harder and more sustained than the one to the right. Both are 7b though, dont know why Rockfax downgraded Chiming for You.
