A must for the aspiring adventure climber
This line starts on the large fallen block. Climb directly up the centre of the face on wonderful flat edges to 2/3 height. Get a shallow cam in (0.75 camolot), climb the wall trending leftwards past a good mono, to an improving series of holds. Finish up the headwall to the left of the crack.
Used to be an aid route. The bolts are still in situ, but so degrated they are not worthy pro. |
Unknown due to the cliff falling down a bit,

had abed down it. 1 cam protects 22 metres. It's not even that good, lukily the crux is not too bad. super top end E4/ low E5.

Checked the gear, holds and moves before climbing it. 1 'ok' cam below feet to protect the crux sequence but the slight sandy nature of the rock and the lack of gear below the cam would suggest E5, due to decking potential if the shallow cam pulls...
Brilliant solution to the main face! Good climbing in a *** setting up the Matterhorn!
Dave Warburton - Lead RP - 30/Aug/09 with Franco Cookson
FA, it would seem. E5- probably, due to lack of trustworthy gear...will be back before long to lead it!
Dave Warburton - 2nd O/S - 27/Jul/09 with Franco Cookson
Abed to clean and check out beforehand. Going to be a right classic I reckon. This, the Teesside Twitcher and the Whitestone traverse must be the Moors triad of adventure?
