The Eternity 19, M1 190'

One of the most impressive and aesthetic lines on the cliff, Sustained climbing on good rock. The first pitch was originally and foolishly top roped. The 1st pitch had to abseiled down and cleaned.

(1) 90' (crux) Straight up to bolt anchor. Two unnecessary bolts are passed en route. Excellent jamb protection.
(2) 80' Use the bolt anchor for aid to get another bolt 3' higher for aid. A very hard move follows, then up wall to a ledge. Bolt runner. Straight up above this to top.

Top roped 1st February 1965.
(1st pitch). John Ewbank.
First led 'On sight', John Moore, February, 1967
2nd pitch added added 12th February
1967 - J. Ewbank, Second unwilling to follow.

So we get back to if a tope rope ascent is considered valid. This has been discussed elsewhere on Chockstone and doesn't warrant further discussion. Ewbank describes the first pitch as the crux which means he must have thought that it was 19. All that's needed now is a consensus on how hard the first pitch is!
