Description

Very different in style from the rest of the Goatland routes, TBC tackles a clean panel of very soft white rock littered with square-ish black holds. It starts less than vertical but the angle kicks back quickly and the holds get further apart, leading to a very airy bulge right below the anchors. The climbing is pretty straightforward but the pump builds up when pulling the weight of 35m of rope while clipping from crimps.
One of the best pitches up there.

Location

Second pitch to Agent Orange (directly in line) or Hellfire (a bit more to the side).

Protection

6 draws plus whatever you need for the pitches below. A total of 21 or 22 to link with Agent Orange (21 if skipping the intermediate anchor). A couple of long runners on the 2 leftmost bolts of AO keep the rope in a perfect straight line.
Rappel/lower of chain anchor, it's a FULL 70m with nothing to spare to get back to the ground.
