[ 1959, Yorkshire Dif, climber Roger Mackintosh, 1 kb]17m. Mild but bold and well chipped. Start under Sinister Cracks and gain the arete on the right then continue following the chipped holds out to the centre of the face. Finish direct with care. The Direct Start, V9, is a fearsome boulder problem. © ROCKFAX
A nice outing for a solo. Step across from the boulder on the left. Then sidle triumphantly to the top on chipped holds. Just don't fall off! Also a good top rope route for beginners.

Did it as a warm up for Blackball (honest). It's very nice, if you like climbing chips, but probably best not to slip off at the top!
