Rockfax Description
The wall is split on the left by a long crack which gives good safe jamming and bridging when it is dry. Sadly it is often a bit green and greasy. © Rockfax

Top rope solo on aid. Epically wet and mossy - less so now, it's on me!

Quality climbing that is super safe. The total lack of friction makes you work harder. A fun outing.

Brilliant, a real gem the best new VS I've climbed in the peak in a while, some cleaning required on route as extremely dirty (the first ascent in a while?? all credit to Trevor Wilson who significantly cleaned this route at the crag clean up) The first of 3 ascents that evening, if only it got this sort of traffic on a regular basis. Certainly worthy of its 2 stars in the new BMC guide.

Velvet jams. Succulent laybacks. Imagine the pleasures if this were more travelled.

Filthy, vegetatious, essential.
