50m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
One of the historic landmark routes of the Peak. The way to climb it these days is in one giant pitch from the ground for an amazing 8a tick, although it is still a good 7c+ tick done in one pitch to the belay of Body Machine. Climb up the Body Machine start then traverse rightwards past a belay and up the technical wall to a big hole in the break. Move slightly right again and then straight up the tufa line via superb moves. Enter the massive groove line above and get a sneaky rest at the Body Machine belay. Finally climb up to the giant roof and exit via very powerful moves to a belay up and right. © Rockfax

FA. Ron Fawcett, Gill Fawcett 1982 (over 3 days). Followed the line of some of the aid route 'The Prow Route' (Bob Dearman, J.Gerrard 1963) although not the start or middle section.

Ticklists: Extreme Rock, 100 best limestone climbs in Britain.

Had a couple working goes to the second belay. The start where the tree used to be is really tough and the rest isn't easy either!
