Rockfax Description
14m. A good climb, up the central feature of the face. Climb the reachy and fingery wall left of the diagonal crack where the odd broken hold has made things trickier (the crack is a harder VS 4c) to the bulges then move right to access the base of the chimney. Finish up this. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The line shown in the Rockfax guide is actually the line of Jabberwok variation.

Takes the bold wall left of the slanting crack (Jabberwok Variation VS 4c). Not a lot of gear unless you use the variation crack. Go to roof (gear) and move right into hanging chimney and squirm up this.

Possibly A. Marsden & the E.Y.M.C. 1950

Bold, delicate fingery climbing on the face (a few high feet/rockovers included) followed by a hilarious struggle in the chimney, all in front of a typical Brimham audience - awesome route!!

Started left of crack up bold face. Took a few attemps to figure feet out before gaining slab. After that easy climbing to the finish.

This is solid 4c and also bold. MVS in the yorkshire guide: big sandbag, would be HVS at froggatt without a doubt :) It snowed heavily on the second half of the rotue which made the top section and then abbing for gear particularly memorable :)
