50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An impressive route covering some extremely serious ground. 1) 6b, 30m. Start at the arete as for Jenny Wren and climb to an old peg. Move left onto the face and climb with great care, past some pegs, to the small ramp of Jenny Wren. Move up the crack above to a thread at a small roof. Pull over the roof and up right (hard) to easier ground. Traverse right a long way to the Rebel cave belay. 2) 6a, 15m. Traverse back left to beneath a shallow groove. Move over the roof and climb the groove to the top. © Rockfax

led both pitches, mega route in a stunning position. My bright idea of using a single rope never paid off, epic rope drag.

I climbed this soon after Craig Parnaby, followed in his footsteps. It's a long way to climb while holding your breath!

Totally rubbish gear on the main wall - got an Rp in and realised it was the wrong size but could not get it out to put a number 3 in. The moves over the bulge were pretty hard as well. Classic Gordale adventure - it all felt fine later sitting in the pub in Malham drinking two pints after a long day. Not much to eat other than a packet of peanuts trying to get some nutrition out of a roll up good memories:)
