James McHaffie and Stuart Wood have added a new route to Dow Crag in the Lake District.

The day after the ascent Steve Ashworth, Woody's work colleague at The Epicentre shop in Ambleside, commented to UKC:

"Woody and Caff did a great looking new route on Dow Yesterday, not much has Woody walking around gob smacked but he's a bit quiet today."

The route description is: 

Abraham's Covenant E7 6c  30m.  19/4/2011

The route tackles the huge overhang/ roof above Abraham's Cave. Arrange some good cams in the breaks and tackle the overhang via some hard moves, boldy move up to some good jugs and the next protection. From the jugs some very hard climbing leads to the wall above. Continue more easily to the belay.

FA. James McHaffie, Stuart Wood
