50m, 2 pitches. The most popular on the face. The climbing is never very hard but the situation is intimidating. It can be climbed in one pitch. 1) 5b, 25m. Climb the flake and step right in the open groove (as for Monster Mash). From the top of this pull out rightwards and climb the wall above to the small ledge belay. 2) 5c, 25m. Follow a diagonal line of cracks up and leftwards past a large thread. Easier ground leads to the grass ledges and the stake belays at the top. © ROCKFAX

Brilliant route, climbing out of the gloom, loads of gear, amazinf rock, interesting curxes, tough at E2 but not E3 it gets in the new CC guides.

In one big pitch. Faffed a little on the headwall, but then found the way.
Ally Smith - Lead O/S - 25/Aug/13 with Aly

Led P1, greasy as usual but not on the tricky section, much better climbing than expected especially on harder P2, approx 7 fresh threads insitu made it feel very friendly. 200th extreme.
