An excellent and fairly popular route. 1) 5c, 19m. Climb the wall leftwards to a vague grassy groove. Follow it, past a peg, to an old bolt then make hard moves past this. Move up to a sloping ledge below the level of the cave and belay on some large gear. 2) 5c, 21m. Climb up to the break and step right to below a corner. Pull up this and follow it to a sloping ledge. Take the ledge leftwards to join Carnage. Finish up this.
You need to save some medium sized gear, F 2 or 2.5, to belay on the ledgse suggested (The best place - unless you are happy for your runners to fall out of the next one).
Isn't it about time the bolt was renewed. It's the same one as i remember when i first did it 35 years since(as a partial aid route i must add) . and i did it only a couple of months since, still think its the best route of its grade at Malham tho.
Quite surprised!! Did this route 20/03/05 and expected it to be polished to hell. Well it wasn't, the rock was sound and it was also very clean. Wey hey......
Saw you on it and inspired to do it the following weekend. I did it in one pitch but traversed left too early from groove on the 2nd pitch - a mistake I am sure I made when I last did it - 20 years ago. A great route spoilt only by poor rock on the first 20 feet.
An ok route, and not worth 5c, but an amusing traverse near the top
