Rockfax Description
One of the best 7b's in the Dales. Sustained climbing up the groove leads to steeper rock. Power up the headwall to the lower-off. © Rockfax

FA. Chris Sowden et al 1985. Initially climbed with various bits of gear but now fully bolted. A very popular route on superb limestone.

βeta: Redpointed this before it was fully bolted and had to put a couple of wires in to augment the in-situ gear. Certainly felt 7b+ to me.

Will Hunt 12 Jun, 2018 Lead RP Better connies today. Did it first go of the evening and wobbled a bit at the top. Belayed Rob for a bit and then lead it again much more smoothly - a combination of feeling more relaxed, more warmed up, and used a different sequence that I saw Rob use.
