24m. The superb isolated pillar between the diverging cracks is low in the grade. Already worthwhile and it will become even better after it has cleaned up a bit. Not in current guidebook.

Low in the grade, but very sustained. Will be superb when less dusty and a bit more secure! Just as I grabbed the only big jug on the route (right at the top) my foothold broke and I cut loose but hung on. People should try these routes before just dissing them as another shite quarry.

Good last comment - there are a few less than good climbs at Intake but the vast majority offer some excellent climbing - especially the trad routes.

Scarcely 6c+ (very much easier than Tuckers Grave), 6c probably fair, sustained and good.

Can't agree with Harold's comment "Very much easier" I' say these routes are close together in difficulty I think it is easy to make Stinking Rose overly taxing by mis reading the crux move and trying the wrong method. This will tend make it feel harder than it needs to be.

Err?? what was I thinking when I wrote the above hopelessly mixed up about the routes Stinking Rose and Tuckers Grave
