The pride of Ennerdale!. The climb takes a direct line up the main face of Boat How,between Numenor and Fanghorn. Perhaps only skyhooks will prevent ground fall from the crux...P1. Climb a short slab to a piton at 15', Sustained technical climbing straight up for about 50'past three short grooves to a piton on the right.Move back from the piton and make delicate moves left to small cracks and some good placements.Continue straight up the steep groove ,pull out right and follow slabs to the top. A superb pitch.E5 5c (5.11R)165'
