The prominent groove gives a fine climb, though the approach has its fair share of dodgy rock. It may have a peg in it, but it doesn't need one. The main groove is pumpy fun. © Rockfax

Contrary to the opinions of many here I thought this was a good route, bit of loose rock down low but plenty of nice/airy climbing above to make up for it. Plus, it gets the last of the evening sun (and was Penny's first HVS lead)
My first HVS lead. Was very scary due to loose rock but very fun up high - cool and committing moves to get into the groove. Beautiful view from the top too!
nice techy direct start, some dodgy rock then a very nice thuggy crack to finish with good hand jams.

Pumpy in the top groove!

Dreadful. 20m of dangerous walking on loose rock for 5m of reasonable climbing. Not worth the risk and not HVS.
It's got a nice little section entering the groove, but apart from that, it's a truly dreadful route. Don't bother.
better route than in looks from below, stiff for the grade
Good route, tough moves pulling into the grove, lower section bit lose and indistinct.

A bit on the loose side - maybe the description should be amended to reflect this.

Great positions in the upper part, but got quite pumped and thought I might peel, having probably not recovered from the first route of the evening! We took the scenic route down as it was getting very dark via Eyam... don't ask :o
Loose rock on the lower section, fine if you handle with care. Top section is great and quite airy, very good climb.

Rich lead P2 with a hang - followed with cold hands grateful not to be leading.
Alot of loose rock on the lower section. A major hold fell off on the top section, was a bit freaked out by then so ended up taking lots of rests. Got up it in the end though. Really hard!
Nails! Loose as hell on the lower bit and the top bit was harder than E2s I'd done here earlier that day...
bit of an adventure...

Wasn't sure of the correct line up to the groove, but tackled the lower wall as directly as I could, The groove got quite pumpy with no decent rests, an exciting route.
