40m.

Rockfax Description
Once this was the big challenge of Chee Dale but the resulting free version is not quite the mega-route that was hoped for. Apart from the section crossing the roof, it is all straightforward. It is around 7b+ as a sport route. The use of aid on the roof section offers the potential of an exciting trip up one of the Peak's finest features at an amenable grade (VS and A1 ).
1) 4b, 20m. Climb the pod-shaped groove to a ledge.
2) 6c, 10m. Climb up to the roof and cross this past a desperate move (long reach) at the lip to an exposed stance just above.
3) 4c, 10/20m. Plod up the groove above to the grass terrace. A finish can be made up the groove in the final tower if required. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Once this was the big challenge of Chee Dale but the resulting free version is not quite the mega-route that was hoped for. Apart from the section crossing the roof, it is all straightforward. Pitch 2 relies on fixed gear (threads & bolts) at around 7c as a sport route. The use of aid on the roof section offers the potential of an exciting trip up one of the Peak's finest features at an amenable grade (VS and A1 ).
1) 4b, 20m. Climb the pod-shaped groove to a ledge.
2) 7c (sport), 10m. Climb up to the roof and cross this past a desperate move (long reach) at the lip to an exposed stance just above.
3) 4c, 10/20m. Plod up the groove above to the grass terrace. A finish can be made up the groove in the final tower if required.
