Like this loads. Any idea on the background of the route name?

We climbed this route in 2011 in trad style (without pegs) as it is in the style of the British pioneers. Cocks stands for French, so the name we gave to this route means "Waiting for the French", that is, before the arrival of the French, who are famous for putting bolts everywhere!
