[The best sport climb in the UK?, 3 kb]22m. One of the classic sport routes of Britain. A brilliant climb with an infamous start and a strength-sapping finish. Getting a well-informed local to tell you where to put your feet helps on the start. You’ll have to sort the pumpy finish out yourself. © ROCKFAX

First F7c. Gazillionth redpoint, having used a terrible sequence for the boulder start for ages and ages before finally being shown the way last week.
PeteH - Lead RP - 14/Sep/12

Didnt get to the top. Chanced it but unfortuantely it had a big wet section on it. Another time.

First redpoint attempt, came off going through the last roof. Missed a massive jug out. after that just too tired to keep it together.
Ed Booth - Lead dog - 17/May/10 with Gus Hudgins

Jon Garside - Lead RP - Apr/10

Awesome. Best sport route ive done yet. Nasty start gives way to some amazing undercutty climbing. Superb.

Tried it years ago then lead first try after puting the clips in. What does that count as - retro 1st redpoint? Awesome route either way!
JulesV - Lead RP - 22/Sep/09

Fell high on the flash then managed it first redpoint, best rout I've done at Malham

What an awesome route and I think the best I have ever done to date! I am afraid that I pulled off the big right hand undercut near the end of pumpy sequence just before the big flat sloper (Took a mega lob whilst doing this!).. still goes though and not much harder, just even more classic as no more loose holds!
