18m. An awesome link-up giving the hardest route south of the Peak District. Start up Poppy and where it joins Fisherman’s, reverse Postman Pat into Tuppence then finish up Tuppence Ha'penny.

This is harder than 8c, I have no doubt. It takes in most of the hard climbing on Poppy (8b+), reverses the crux of Postman Pat (8a+), climbs almost all of Tuppence (8b), and then adds a hard 7c finish. Total Nails. Needs straightening out on the section into Tuppence to make it a better line. A fitting swan-song from Mr Palmer.

How the hell do you reverse a 8a+ crux?!
