A Pilgrim's Progress ascends a splitter finger crack and roofs above on spectacular white Gunks stone at the far right (east) end of Skytop.

The tree which shaded the route has fallen over, leaving it a more exposed line to the fixed anchors at the top of the cliff.

The last nice cliff feature at the end of Skytop. You can't miss it cause there's nothing past it.


Standard Gunks Rack, with an emphasis on the finger sized stuff.
