75m, 4 pitches.
A classic struggle up the striking chimney line starting 10m left of King’s Cave Chimney. The first three pitches are overhanging. Excellent belays; some brittle rock – beware parties on screes below. 1. 15m 6a Climb the slanting slot just to the right of the main chimney. Belay 6m higher at a cave. 2. 17m 5c Swing up left, climb a ladder dyke, then follow the chimney to a grassy break. 3. 18m 5c Climb the overhanging trap dyke – an impressive pitch. 4. 25m 4c Follow the dyke and surmount a big chockstone to finish just west of the summit
