Pleasant and mild at the grade, though the final arete is a bit on the airy side.</br>1) 4b, 15m. A long groove leads via a couple of moves on its left arete to a stance in the corner on the right.</br>2) 4b, 12m. Shuffle out left to gain the arete (a bit light on gear) and finish through the crusty bulges in a spectacular position.
A really great route, the first pitch is simple enough but the top exposed and with a lack of gear to make you ponder for a moment or two.
Good solid VS climbing - first pitch is a pleasure. Placed only 2 bits of insecure gear on second pitch which feels insecure - slimy top out was a bit of a shock!
Top pitch is bold but easy. Managed to place 2 good wires and 2 friends, which were all solid placements.
First Pitch is straight forward but holy cow the second pitch is interesting. Take lots of bottle and a change of trousers...
1st pitch fairly straightforward VS stuff up a series of ledges / grooves to a good stance- nothing remarkable.
Looks like I'm the only one who doesn't rate this climb. First pitch is ok but second one Bag of... I reckon. Example of the bad side of Millstone - sliding plates of temporary gritstone.
top pitch is good climbing but on suspect rock ,first pitch very steady .not a bad climb if you want to push into vs
First pitch was better than we'd expected given the write-ups in various guides. Second pitch, just one 4b move leaving the ledge, the rest was (very) poorly protected 3c. There were some obvious worn small nut/friend placements under the final section, but the block they would be placed behind moves with a gentle push. And the marginal large friend would be on exfoliating rock both above and below. Best just push on to the top...
