Paul Ross on the 140' first pitch
Both chaps were from the town of Keswick in the English Lake District.The climb starts up the very obvious corner left of Family Plot on the East end of The Tombstone.P1) Aid passed an old drilled piton from a previous unknow attempt and gain the 140' corner. Use leeper cam hooks and small cams to reach three bolts at its top where the crack closes.Belay at a 3 bolt stance above.(Best to take a hand drill as belay area may have been damaged by target practice).C2 140'P2)Move left from the belay to a crack system that leads to another bolt belay just left of a perfect hand crack.60' C3 .P3)Climb the crack to the summit. 80'5.10 Rap Epitaph.
