<< Apocalypse < Books on the Bonfire  |  One Night > Meditation >>


Sadly a bit of a drainage line otherwise it would see more action.
1) 5b, 25m. Start as for Apocalypse but traverse right out of the corner when it gets tricky. Climb the flake to a belay at the break.
2) 5b, 16m. Move left and pull over into a grotty groove.
Suddenly, E5 6b - The wall right of the starting groove of Alfresco to reach and cross that route.

Would be worth a star if it was clean (but sadly it isn't the only route on Chee Tor which is in a rather sad state).

At the base of the final crack there's a loose block which makes the crux move rather exciting. Shame it's not climbed more often. Didn't do pitch 2 - looked a bit overgrown.

I thought this route was very good and hard at the grade. Not particularly dirty or loose and well worth the effort-don't bother with the top pitch though

what a sweet line imagine if you could do it with out being choked by dandelions and scared the crap out of by huge spiders and beetles! but very nice route considering! lovley moves up the crack after the traverse!
