Kipling Groove...Historic route named as it was Ru...

Description 

Definitely a lakes classic. Prepare for the occasional wait and polished piece of rock.

1. Climb up to the overhang then move under it to get to the belay in an overhung recess.

2. Climb the wall on the right to the overhang, pass this then up to the crux moves passing the bulge.

Move right then up easier ground to the top.


Location 

Left side of the west face

So called because it was "Ruddy 'ard".
