16m. Climb the bold and bald wall trending slightly rightwards.
A crucial nut runner lurkes in a pocket. Bolder wall/slab to the right again is Black Mountain College (Andy Popp 90s) E7 6b.
how can 2 people find this easy E5, and then Jon Read comes along with crucial runner info and proclaims it E7? who is missing what?
pardon? there are 2 routes being discussed here, Over the Moors is the route on the left of the wall (e5) and Black Mountain Collage on the right of the wall (e7)...or have i miscontrued the comment?
Ay? I thought it was quite clear. Over The Moors is on the left (and has a nut runner in a pocket, and is E5) and Black Mountain College is to the right (and doesn't, and is E7). Does that make sense now?
perfect sense to me Jon old chap, me thinks martin k was misunderstanding your comments...
je suis le muppet! i read it v quickly one lunchtime and didn't quite connect the E7 bit with the Black Mountain Collage bit...sorry folks! (I also hoped it may also explain why Budgie and i couldn't get anywhere near it!)
Surely it's worth a star or two?
I think it had three ascent in as many weeks. All of them thinking they were the first to do it.
Black Mountain College a 3 star E7 6b, low in the grade, quite bold. Up that wall to the right without the runner placement. Had quite a few repeats.
