The Cornice (Water-cum-Jolly)

Derbyshire, ENGLAND

Climbs 32 – Rocktype Limestone – Altitude 243m a.s.l – Faces NE

Crag features
A less extensive version of its namesake in Chee Dale, just as steep but with bigger roofs and less passers by. Reasonable rock (as long as the glue lasts!), most routes are hard (7b+ and above) and require considerable power, technique and large ape indexes! The crag suffers from seepage and is seldom dry before summer. Best routes are Rumble in the Jungle (8a+), The Free Monster (7c+), Brachiation Dance (7b+ - a must!), Superfly (8a+) and The Weakling (7c+). All about 20m long.

Superocity (F.A. Simon Reed I think) needs adding.

The sport route near Thatcher Years is in fact called "Incapacity Benift". A few people need to edit their logs!
