Finishing up Great Western


The best route at the crag - possible the best in Yorkshire.

Climb up the left facing groove until under the overhang. Traverse out left in a better and better position to reach the arete, and a good resting spot at a 'pinnacle'.

From the pinnacle finish directly above.

It is a good idea to bring a confident second for the strenuous traverse leftwards :-)
