Rockfax Description
A fine combination of two old routes gives a near-classic.
1) 4c, 18m. Climb the open-book corner to a ledge (peg). Awkward moves lead up and right around a bulge.
2) 4c, 15m. Traverse left to the arete, high or low, and follow the exposed groove above. Take care to avoid rope-drag. © Rockfax

FA. (Gabriel) J.Soper, N.Crowther, D.Johnson 1957. (Pearly Gates) D.Mellor, D.Johnson 1959

Ticklists

Rockfax Peak Limestone Top 50, The best the UK has to offer for mere mortals (apart from the lakes cos its always wet)

βeta: First did this 30 years ago in 2 pitches but really enjoyed today's ascent in one pitch, although certainly more polished it is still a Stoney classic , some loose rock but bags of protection to ease the stress! However, I think doing it in one pitch makes it feel like a good HVS?

βeta: Pearly Gates not a pleasant experience IMO. Great exposure for the grade but loose, shattered rock and rope drag made this a climb I was glad to get off.
