First Ascent of remaining line after rockfall - dirty and dusty but will clean up. We gave it E2 5c - and have no idea who gave this name.
as E1 Tower of Orthank - Now an E3 with the wrong name (should be called The King of Ramsbottom)
(Tower of Orthank E1... must be about to fall down at this point in time!)
This was Tower of Orthank E1 - fell down in about 1991 - I reclimbed as the E3 (FA) but not sure who named it for me... Paul Dewhurst from Bury Mountaineering Club perhaps.
