There will be a story about this particular ascent coming in Alpinist 28, I believe.

A pitch or two from Northeast Buttress of Higher Cathedral Rock should be represented in photos here...

LOL Jay...
Or for that matter Rotert's
"Titties and Beer"

Surprised Chiloe (or any New Englander) has not mentioned:
N.Conway - Bombardment
Franconia - Reppy's

And is this independent routes or do single pitches qualify?
If so I plug for the 'DBL crack' pith up to Big Sandy.

The last moves to the first belay can be cruxy if your legs are to short on one end.

I tried to post it by adding img tags, when that didn't work I looked at it saw it is on my face, I believe they don't allow linking and you have to have it hosted elsewhere, like photobucket.

Ezra, your first image tag should look open like this: [img]

You have both of them the closing tag. Here's your link. You also need to do the "view image" thing to isolate the picture.

Hard to believe but this was mid-November BITD, as if the apparel and
gear didn't already scream that. I wonder how much of that moss is
still on the first pitch.

Supertopo Tony, Yvonne and I went to England in in 2007. This is how all my posts begin, but: "Pouring over book-X in year-Y, I've wanted to climb route-Z". In this case it was Mountain #26 "True Grit", 1973 and English gritstone. I couldn't remember how hard these routes were, but we're now 5.8 climbers so, there you go. The first was at Bamford Edge above our lodgings (pub!) by the Ladybower Resevoir.

The following are from some super moderate climb at Stanage (Balcony Buttress) that we translated to 5.6. Whatever. I whimpered on the lead, and you might notice the pro every 6 inches or so.

The following are from the NW end of Stanage Edge. We all found the gritstone grain milling wheels super interesting and between us, photos of them must have comprised half our pictures.

The birding was super cool, too. Then Tony and Yvonne went off North and climbed Ardverikie Wall on Binnein Shuas in the Central Scottish Highlands.
