Brilliant route. Rock feels a bit hollow in places but great moves and bomber gear throughout.

Conan lead this, with it starting to rain halfway up. Once the rain stopped Ian seconded on one rope, with James intended to use the other. Was sopping wet and desperate, however, so I took James' rope. Really tough moves across with the slab providing nothing for the feet in the wet.

Excellent pitch, probably the best at it's grade on Yorkshire limestone?
