Rockfax Description
Vying with Supersonic on High Tor as the best E5 on Peak limestone; but this one is almost a full grade harder. Make 5c moves up the groove with good holds and adequate protection to a rest ledge on the right (bomber crucial nuts). Now climb determinedly up and left to pockets (thread) below the sloping ledge. Getting established on this is difficult and leads to a semi-rest. Beware: the upper wall climbed from left to right has taken many scalps. Traverse left to the Mortlock's Arete's belay or right to continue up Apocalypse. © Rockfax
