Mortician groove for added fun
with Ed Hutchings, Izzy Burnham
John Kelly 24 Feb AltLd Bottom pitch greasy (me) MB climbs crux behind yew and continues up the greasy, dirty unprotected slab, finally his nerve cracks and draping a poor sling he descends to stance at mid height offering the comment 'could of died there' first time I've heard him say that in 15 years climbing, must be going soft. I traverse off to dry pleasant Mortician where I wobbled my way to the tree. MB finishes up steep vegetated groove to join the pinnacle. Felt like a tough day.

Christine Close 1 Sep, 2018 2nd O/S Slightly confused at the end of the second pitch. The start of the third pitch is the groove about 2-3m along the ledge to the right BELOW the yew tree. Fantastic climb with some interesting problems and a slightly airy move on the second pitch.

P2 is excellent and worthy of more traffic - great delicate climbing that is reasonably protected. felt like low HVS but contending with the midges with no repellant possibly heightened the difficulties! finished up superdirect finger traverse as P3 of OG looked filthy.
