    Crack system opposite Tic Tac Toe at Threeways, can’t find any reference to it in the guide or in Ross’ notes. As hard as I find it to believe, the loose mossy rock at the top out (and lack of references) indicates it may not have been climbed. Can someone please let me know if they’ve done it prior to June 1st? If not I’d be happy to give a grade and name, as it would be a worthy addition to the guide and deserves a star at least.

    Climb is called Atticus (14)*. Good protection with small gear. All trad with a fun top out. Enjoy…

    Yeah a few of us climbed that about 8 weeks back a 14 or 15 was what we thought also. We were working on that climb but just using the face rather than bridging/chimneying up using both sides. Rather crumbly rock adds to some pretty desperate moves…. on natural pro 😀

    To clarify further to the last comments, I checked the date we first tried this route and the date described by Sam J was before that. Apologies for the confusion, I only saw the post just recently. However I’ve finished off a great alternative way to climb this route –

    1#, climb as a chimney using the opposite wall as per the original post (thought it was worthy of a grade 15?)
    2#, Grade 24**, climb on the crack only (without using opposite wall to chimney). Its quite strenuous and sustained with the some great moves especially the top half. FA: J. Hollingworth, O. Morrell – Aug 13

    I was going to call the route ‘Two-ways’ (as in there’s two ways to climb it) before I realised someone had climbed the chimney but not sure if it qualifies for a separate name now?

    Hi Jonas,
    That is certainly an impressive and inspiring ascent to climb it without the opposite wall. I’ll be sure to give it a go if I get out that way again.
    Personally, I don’t see any issues with having the two names/climbs.
