24m. A super climb when clean and then the match of anything at Millstone. Well protected and sustained rather than overly technical. Climb the fingery lower wall to the big break then step left and power up the fine continuation crack until respite arrives on the Western Terrace. Escape off left.
Excellent and irresistable. Some great moves, a couple of rests, and excellent gear - proper classic! However maybe E2 as it's slightly slabby, safe, and only sustained for 6m or so to finish...
P.S. Seems lowering off the tree tat is de-rigeur, this needs backing up to the second tree if someone can take some tat up (sorry didn't have any).
Maybe hard E2. The gear is good except for the moves after the break. A bit sapced on RP's 2 and 4. Then excellent gear. Watch out for sand on your shoes fron the break. The tat on tha lower off is OK.
E2!!!! You're kidding! Wow, those Lancs men are so hardcore... Sustained, interesting climbing.
Lowering off is the thing to do... The technical crux is low down, although the bit after the ledge is rather committing...
superb - would be a total classic if it didnt get so dirty. E3, despite some of the comments, is fair for this. feels v sketchy when some of the footholds are dirty and theres the 'peeling paint' effect left of the crack. great gear all the way.
