[Lucy Creamer headpointing Janus E7 6b, Curbar, the Peak District, 3 kb]18m.

Rockfax Description
The long, shallow, leaning groove that forms the direct on Rigid Digit is arduous and superb as well as being one of the very best lines anywhere on grit. Small wires protect throughout but it is a good idea to place a solid runner early on to avoid them unzipping in the (inevitable?) event of a fall. © ROCKFAX

FA. Johnny Dawes 1986. Originally given E7 7a Òbecause the grooves looked like 2 sevensÓ.

Ticklists: Froggatt to Black Rocks (BMC) - The Grade List, Peak Rock/16/Eighties Gritstone :The Shape of Things to Come.
