Classic Rock - Red Pencil Direct

Well maybe its a bit sad, but between being ill (man flu) and work I persuaded Ben to come and find the above classic rock route on Pen y Ghent in the Yorkshire Dales.

15-20 minute walk in Ben....!

Now where is the stable rock!?
What can I say.... well the actual climbing was very mediocre, and probably wouldn't get any stars if elsewhere, but.... walking to the top of Pen y Ghent was scenic while Ben moaned about being unprepared (I'd told him the walk in was 15-20 mins - well I didn't have a guide book... when it took about 45 + minutes).... exploring to find the crag (the emailed and printed single page was quite vague).. and finally climbing a route next to a previous big rock fall, and finding quite a few bit loose rocks on the actual route all led to a fun few hours on this glorious day.

Allegedly the best route of the crag (note big rock fall scar on right!)
