Britain's most famous climb? It used to be (E1 5c).

This climb had it's name long before it was climbed, it was attempted by some pretty gnarly climbers from Menlove Edwards (who successfully top-roped it in the 1930's) to Peter Harding before its successful ascent by a young lad named Joe Brown. Joe used a couple of pitons, and the previous generations just weren't into that.

1) 120ft 5.10+. It's one pitch long and has a stiff move at about 20ft, then easier until arriving at the niche, some delicate stemming leads to a difficult move back into the finishing corner crack.


It's obvious.


Standard rack, wires + 2 pitons(?)
