A free ascent of the aid route Thor, gives a low 8a, sadly it is almost always wet. Climb the sidewall then link the pockets across the roof to reach the jug just above the big fat chain. © Rockfax

So good to get this done. So unique, so outrageous and so un-Peak - not single crimp in sight!

Good route, but my god, don't go there on a bank holiday. We fled to Malham after hundreds of kids and families invaded the cave.

not the easiest warm up on this bitterly cold day. Climbed on blind luck and against all of the odds succeeded 200th grade 8.

What a route... Pretty much dry barring one or two pockets, which are only a little on the damp site - perfectly usable with the use of a towel/tin foil. Would love to get this done before it gets wet, it's so unique.
