Rockfax Description
A good route, unfortunately spoilt by some crumbly calcite holds midway up. An often dirty start past a couple of resin 'P' bolts reaches the bottom of a calcite groove. Climb the groove and trend leftwards at its top to reach a good handrail in the smooth wall. Continue upwards on flat holds to the belay - hopefully just before strength runs out. © Rockfax

FA. John Elcock 24.7.92 24/Jul/1992.

βeta: Many years later lets put the record straight. If it's the route I'm thinking of then the first ascent was actually made by myself and Nadim Siddiqui. I know it was the FA because we bolted it and climbed it on the same day. We called at Barney Rubble and had intended to call that wall 'Flinstones Wall' and climb some of the other lines. Did go back and climb some of them but GG had beat us to them. I'll post the original date of the FA when I find it in my records. Chris Hardy
