<< Bye, George < John Peel  |  Wild Bill > Crazy Horse >>


A hard route although the 1st pitch is good at HVS 5a.
1) 5a, 22m. Start as for John Peel but follow the lower break out right then climb up to the stance under the overlap.
2) 6a, 20m. Pull into the steep groove above and climb it (ancient ironmongery) until it is possible to get out left onto the wall. Continue up this steeply until it eases and finish via grass and some poor rock.
FFA. John Codling, Steve Allen 1983

The first pitch really is a worthy HVS in its own right - ab off the tat at the belay of John Peel.
