Rockfax Description
The square-cut corner is climbed via the awkward left-hand crack to the top of the flakes. The right-hand crack is a good off-width problem. Continue up the groove passing the exposed chockstone to the easier upper gully and an exit. A finish out left as for Doncaster's Route is a more open and trickier option. © Rockfax

An awkward start leads to a sweaty green chimney and squeeze to finish. Apart from the lack of good climbing throughout it's okay.

Thought it was a vdiff when I climbed it (misread the guide). The start was a bit hard to protect but pushed on until I got good gear. If I'd realised that it was an HS I might not have been so bold!
