/ Multipitch sport routes within the UK?
Are there any?
Cheddar has some
There are a surprising number of multipitch sport routes in the slate quarries (especially Mathilda), one of which has been claimed as the new longest sport route in the UK, robbing the previous title-holding route at Cheddar of the accolade. The first ascentionists of both routes really need to get the long tape measures out, do some much more precise length calculations, post pictures on the internet for proof and work out once and for all the answer to the crucial question everyone is asking: whose penis is biggest?
Probably some routes on the Ormes.
Also there are girdle traverses.
The Bat on Plum Buttress is one of the best, I'm guessing.
There's a brilliant 7a on Go Wall at Wintour's Leap too
Note both of these have access restrictions. See https://www.thebmc.co.uk/Download.aspx?id=807
Heil Hitler (7a) - Wintour's Leap
Lot's in Twll Mawr on the slate:
Black Hole Sun (7a+) - a personal favourite - great top pitches.
The Rock Bottom Line (7b+) - getting harder
The Quarryman (E8 7a) - needs a couple of wires for the first pitch.
just do Trad multi pitch. Much better
Thanks for the responses; this has given me great insight in setting some new goals...
•climb harder sport routes outside - all the multi-pitch sport seems to be 6b+ and above.
•get more confident at trad especially anchors - atleast this’ll open up some easy routes within the country.
•go abroad :/
Two routes in Horseshoe quarry in the peak. Quarry man is a 2 pitch F6a, and the route to its left is F5.
both fit your profile
