Needle Ridge >>
30m. Climbs the obvious projecting buttress about 20 m right (east) of Napes Needle. Start from grassy ledge at foot of buttress. Climb easily to optional stance/belay below a steep crack (Chantry Butress Direct, HVS) and climb the slab on the right which soon leads to a steep and quite difficult crack, from the top of which a precarious traverse left leads to a niche on the arete (top of the crack of the Direct). Climb the groove out of the niche (some doubtful rock and minimal gear) and exit right (very exposed and bold). If not continuing up another route, take some tat for an abseil descent (unless you relish steep exposed grassy slopes with rocks below them!)

This is a very good route, but tough (4b) and bold for the grade. The finish is tricky and very exposed with your last gear a long long way below you!

A shaky solo which I didn't enjoy. I later found out that Claude Frankland - HVS crack-climbing specialist of the 1920s - fell to his death leading this obscure little route in 1927
