Not To Be Taken Away


A rite of passage. The best problem in the Peak. The greatest moment on gritstone. These superlative descriptions don't really do Not To Be Taken Away justice; for that, look at the picture.

Technically, the hardest move comes first and each one grows progressively easier. Mentally, the moves grow harder as the landing falls away. Follow the sweeping right-left ramp up the west face of the Grand Hotel.


On the Grand Hotel boulder, directly below Goliath's Groove.


At the top, the climber is over 25 feet off the ground. Protect accordingly.

Excellent ! The start can be a little bit slick (probably from so many attempts) but it get easier quick.

I moved to England to do this problem and Deliverance. It was better than I could have ever hoped. There is a reason Brits call gritstone "God's own rock".
