Rigor Mortis

Location: The Crow's Nest
Grade: VS  4c
Length: 25m
First ascent: Alan Tees, Richard Smith 14/10/79
Route Description:
There is one more quality route which is not overgrown.   Before reaching the path fork, a wall is visable on the left, with a small cave (with red letters saying ‘Cave’ surprisingly enough!).  From the cave, exit right (awkward but well protected) onto a wall and climb up through a corner to a grassy ledge, belay.  Continue up the wall above past a tree to the top on small holds and adequate protection.

Marty lead this one in 2013 (the first pitch), and thought it was very good, but tough for 4c. I led the 2nd, about 4a, more my standard these days!

The cave used to be known as 'Lundy's cave'. Presume this is some connection with the governor of Derry during the siege!
