Rockfax Description
The hanging flake on the left wall of the groove is approached up a short corner and gives tricky but short-lived laybacking. Choose an exit; care required whichever way you go! Poor. © Rockfax

One worthwhile sequence

Strong committing pull round the flake, then easy / loose.

Last climb of the day. Weighted rope after feet slipped under the flake. Would have cleaned this fine with a bit more patience. Route is very easy apart from the flake moves.

Probably the worst grit route I've ever done, and I enjoy Lancashire quarry climbing! God knows how this route gets a star

Fun but short lived indeed. More mental and physical stress cleaning out the top

Very loose top, get your 2nd to wear a helmet. Good climbing in the flake but the rest of the route is nothing special
