Description

Follow a shallow right-facing corner up the slab that begins between a couple of trees at the base. When the crack ends scramble around a bulge left of the large tree ledge to regain another right-facing corner of similar character. Continue upward to a comfortable ledge with a ring bolt anchor.

Gear – Standard Rack

Mischa Tourin, who has been active in revival of the Bolton Dome, brought this route back to life in August of 2019. The ACB ascent included his father, Peter Tourin, who was a local Bolton climber in the past and at 74 years old had not climbed for decades, and his wife, Claire Tourin, at 20 weeks pregnant with TBD Tourin aka Little Wolf.  

Top Rope access is possible by scrambling up the gully to the left of the slabs. Be aware that walking out to the ledge involves some exposure. I am considering a fixed line from the top of the gully if this route becomes a popular TR route.

Location

Starts between several trees at the base of the Doctor's Slabs 15 feet left of the Country Doctor's Ramble. 

Protection

Standard Rack, Ring Bolt Anchor
