The Whore of Babylon

Adjacent Routes
<< Mega Whore < Mecca - The Mid-life Crisis  |  Mecca Extension > Hajj >>


This was an early attempt to free the aid route Brandenburg Gate which included what is now Hubble and created, briefly, one of the longest sport routes in the Peak. The Hubble moves were by-passed by three pulls on bolts before reaching a flake. Above this it followed what is now Mega Whore. A crucial flake, used to connect Hubble to Mega Whore, has fallen off and the route hasn't been reclimbed since. Not in current guidebook.
FA. Andy Pollitt (3pts) 1987. FAA. (as Brandenburg Gate) Brian Moore, Jim Ballard 1966.
