Rockfax Description
Yorkshire's longest sport climb. Double ropes required for the abseil descent.
1) 6b+, 45m. Climb Walking the Dog and continue to a belay on a ledge a little higher.
2) 15m. Follow easy ledges up and rightwards to a belay behind trees in a corner.
3) 6b+, 30m. Climb a small pillar on the right to an overhang and go over it to a slab. Some intricate climbing leads to easier ground and a lower-off.
Descent - Abseil back down to the belay at the start of pitch 3 and then abseil straight down to the quarry floor with care - about 50m. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A contender for the longest sport route in Yorkshire! It is also necessary to have an extra rope (50m) to abseil after the ascent - or better still, climb on double ropes.
1. 50m (F6b+) As for Walking the Dog but then continue to a higher belay on a grassy ledge.
2. 15m Follow easy ledges across to the right with a short step to a belay behind trees in a corner. A couple of slings (for trees) or nuts (rock 4, 5, and a 'chunky' hex) could be useful!
3. 25m (F6b+) Step right and climb the short pillar to a small overhang. A little care is needed. Pull over onto the slab above on good rock and hidden holds. It now becomes steeper and more problematic, look for the undercut left of the bolts, which allows good holds to be reached. Easier but pleasant climbing leads to a lower-off high up at the top of the quarry. Lower back down to the belay.
Abseil from the belay at the start of pitch 3, with care, straight down to quarry floor. About 40m...a 70m rope, doubled, doesn't do it!

*** Recent reports are that the top pitch is loose and vegetated. It also sports a dangerous block below the belay.

Karl led P1. I led P3. Rained as I clipped the chain so we abseiled back down straight away.

Lead pitch 1 and then seconded the final pitch. First pitch was good but the 3rd was shit lose rock almost all the way until the grassy slabs at the top.

It's a bit chossy for a top 50. Take care
