[ green man on green death, 2 kb]18m. The superb and scary blank groove. It can be approached from a short way up Edge Lane by a tricky traverse (5c), the alternative being a pile of stones or a 6b problem. The crucial upper section has a solitary (old) peg runner in the right wall, just above the first crux and just below the second. Finish using a tiny chipped hold. From the terrace continue up the easy corner or abseil carefully from the chipped spike on the left. © ROCKFAX

Lovely and clean at the moment! Nails start.

6b start. Abseiled and cleaned. Couple of damp holds but avoidable/manageable. Drizzle made the dropout damp and extremely exciting!!!
akhughes - Solo β - 15/Jun/14

Abbed down to check the peg beforehand. Considering its age it looked ok, didn't realise it was concreted in either! Could be backed up well with a large Alien.
