Rockfax Description
A classic Yorkshire HVS on superb rock. Climb via a small right-facing corner to a ledge and move up and left onto the slab above (thread). Traverse right to a huge jug and make steeper moves up and slightly right to good holds and an easier finish. © Rockfax

Went a bit high on the traverse, making the moves over to the good hold very delicate.

By Yorkshire standards this is a soft touch. The traverse is 4c and hard to protect so is HVS by normal standards. Worth noting that the guide book contains errors in relation to this route. See
