A once popular venue adequately described by name. The Nook is a very small cliff with a big impact consisting of a very big roof, most suitable to those who have spent the entire winter in their cellar.
The cliff has now returned to its poorest state since its interest has significantly waned. All of the routes need recleaning and regearing.
|Peak Area Index|
1. The Dukes of Earl (Grey) 7c the leftmost bolted route requires careful placement of the feet.
2. Michael Foot Jam (7c+) ** the left side of the main 'prow' roof gives the Nook's best climb. The key is in the name.
3. A Cure for Arapiles (7b) * the centre of the 'prow' roof. Requires rebolting and reclimbing.
4. Santiano E5 6a * the original free route taking a slightly leftwards line to the lip of the prow. Old PRs only.
5. Rock Umbrella (7b) * A superb roof technicians effort. The centre of the flat roof with stacked PRs.
6. The Storm (7b+) * Another renowned test-piece with 2BRs and a leap of faith from the lip to descend.
7. A Bit of Nooky (8a) * Very leaning initial wall to desperate moves to better holds and another hard move above.
8. The Lockless Monster (8a) **The best route of the trio with desperate moves to crux the roof.
9. Theoria (8a+) * A true cellar dwellers problem just left of the tree close to the crag. The start is hideous, above marginally less so.
10. There's Life in the Old Log Yet (7c) * the desperate wall and tiny groove just right of the tree.
