This climbs up and over one of the more attractive features on the Millstone, a left-leaning, left-facing corner reminiscent (at least to me) of similar features in Eldo. I think this is among the top 3-4 routes on the crag and a good precursor to getting on the more difficult lines of Stone Ground, Moon Walk, and the Maize. In the narrative for this route in their guide, the Ruckmans comment, “Some sort of vindication?” Uh, if the odd are the Ruckmans, I’d say yes, and then some.


The bolt line left of Stone Ground/The Maize, starting with two bolts left of an obvious, attractive left-leaning, left-facing corner.


Draws. Bolts on top rigged for lowering.

Powerful, overhanging, and true to the grade, this is a terrific offering at the Millstone with the crux after the 4th bolt.
