Lunar Wall

Type
Part of

A bit of very good rock, first visited by Nick Cradock who, in line with the times, pioneered a bold trad line up the centre. The wall was developed later by Brent Shears with Lunar Landing on the left and Lunar Tick on rh RHS. Nicks line went between the two and has recently been bolted by Grant Piper. 2/1/24.
