|The Couch Potato||E7 6b|
|Daggers! An unhinged adventure up middle of the impressive quarry wall, gained from about half height from the left. Hard moves reach the top of an enormous 'shipwreck' flake in the middle of the wall. Finish direct from the left-hand side of the hanging flake. Rotten rock, difficult climbing, vegetation and lichen (particularly at the top) welcome your insanity. |
Second ascent Chris Hutchins October 2000, not to be confused with the other Staffordshire Chris 'Gus' Hutchins who didn't climb it (hence the confusion and erroneous attribution in the current guide).
