Rockfax Description
24m. Another fine climb, less popular than its near neighbour but not really much less worthy. Follow Black and Tans to its first groove. Climb this to its top, move left then back right to outflank the overhangs then finish up the well-positioned crack above. A big pitch at the grade. © Rockfax

I'm sure this would merit its stars in the dry as it was pretty good even in the wet.

Louis lead. I climbed totally in the dark. A good climb, especially getting into the crack. Found Mick's chalk ball that Emma lost earlier in the year on Black & Tans.

Very fun and varied because so long. Placed at least 10 pieces of pro, with two 15+ ft. runouts. Three Almscliffe climbs in this single pitch. First trad climb Augustine and I ever did together completely on our own. Lovely. As for grade, I have no idea, partly b/c still trying to wrap my head around British grades, and partly because there are many ways you could do this, some very easy, some a bit more fun.

vigroovian 01/Oct/14 Lead O/S

Incredible climbing. Beautiful route with a few cheeky moves / high steps thrown in (depending on how you climb I guess). Genrally pretty easy climbing, just a high step or two that with the added height of the route make for an exciting climb.

Easy climbing, but absolute quality all the way up! Good hand and foot holds just where you want them and will take as much gear as you can carry. Take some slings to extend your quick draws for the first 5 meters or so. S 4a is a fair grade.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who found this challenging for HVD, though the holds were largely good there was lots of steep ground with little in the way of rests. I really didn't have enough gear either, could have done with twice as many quickdraws, and some big things for the upper section (I ended up running it out fairly excessively).

Deffinately hard for HVD thought the upper section eases somewhat. I've led HSs that where easier.

A nice climb, a lot higher than previously lead, pretty scarry for a low grade.

Couldn't get established in the main crack at about half height, so had to traverse out left, up the corner (of black and tans?) and back right, fine after that, seemed much harder than maud's garden at severe
