Plumbers Corner** VS 4c
[Record shot of Plumbers Corner (VS4c), 3 kb]

Rockfax Description
The vertical angle gives a fine pitch reminiscent of Millstone's The Mall, though with the odd loose hold. At the top of the corner, make a long and delicate traverse away right until a usually dirty exit presents itself. © ROCKFAX

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the dusty corner crack to the left of Bramble Crack to below an overhang. Rise diagonally right to reach a horizontal shelf, which is traversed into the top of Bramble Crack past a flake.

Ticklists: Froggatt to Black Rocks (BMC) - The Grade List, Eastern Peak Grit 100 VD- VS.

route ok, exciting beginning of right hand traverse but no gear afterwards due to unreliable rock, exit holds covered with soil/leaves

Andy lead it earlier in the afternoon but we were feeling a bit uninspired by some of the other routes and as I quite like it on 2nd I also led it.

Beware some loose rock and quite a lot hollow sounding. Interesting enough though.

Found a lovely bat on the traverse. Waited till he was back in his `home' (a crack) then carried on...

was really damp, which i think added a grade, it felt terrifying, probably cause i missed some holds and had to smear on wet rock, also ran out of medium sized nuts
climb the peak - Lead O/S - 2011

Quite a tricky VS. Couple of loose holds. Was going to do the direct, which looks good, but it was covered in moss, lichen and cobwebs - needs someone to ab down and clean it.
