Our Father | E4 Trad climb at Stoney Middleton


Probably one of the hardest free climbs in the UK when Tom Proctor made the first ascent. So named because Geoff Birtles spoke the Lord's Prayer before attempting to second Tom Proctor on the first ascent.

Climber Style Ascent Date Suggested Grade
Tom Proctor Lead | worked Jun 1968
First ascent.

At the time one of the hardest routes in the country. Tom led the line with only 3 pieces of protection, a worrying thought for the modern climbers! [3]
