Restricted Access

Ramshaw is home to some of the hardest routes in Britain and most of them are graded HVS - a Yosemite style tape job is the only access requirement! There are no access problems at the main crag. However, do not try and climb at Lady Rock (the buttresses on the far right above the farm house), these are not on access land, the owner lives very close and has been confrontational.

6m.

Rockfax Description
6m. The blunt arete is climbed on its right-hand side and has runners at two-thirds height. The final section can be leapt up or crept up depending on your style, or total lack of! © Rockfax

βeta: Sorry to be annoying, but I did this route in April 1997.I`m pretty sure I wrote it up to the new routes people. Here`s the description I wrote in my guidebook anyway: Hey Jude E15C The Friendly but deceptive arete left of Wriggler. Climb the arete to a break, good cams using a foot jam make a long move to the top. I can`t beleive it now gets E4 6b I presumed it had probably been done before me anyway. Sorry

βeta: the route is to the left of Wriggler not the right, perhaps this explains the difference? From the retro claimed "Hey Jude E15C The Friendly but deceptive arete right of Wriggler."
