Bingo. Barbara Thatcher climbing. This particular pitch is, apparently, a variation that takes the opposite side of the ridge from the "regular" route. We didn't bother with a guidebook since...well its a ridge after all.

Is there still fixed gear at the crux making it a spurt route?





Four years back there was one ugly runner tied-off to something deep in the alcove. Someone bolted something up the face around the corner from the dihedral, which, if one were unsporting one could reach around and clip, but why bother...the crack eats gear.

Amazing scientific fact that the the grass and lichen on a route is directly proportional to the number of people waiting in line for it on a Saturday.

My motto has been their is never a need to wait in line for a climb. (something is ALWAYS open) That something that one fine day was BF

Anyone ever try Nemesis? Anther hidden gem covered in grass....
