Nice crack climb just right of The Goblin King. Climb the initial crack of The Goblin King to the break. Move up and right to gain a crack and corner above. Pull leftwards over a bulge to a resting place. Traverse left under the finish of The Goblin King to a horrible exit over loose blocks to a tree.

Great climb, easily worth a star. Felt pretty hard to me, but it may just be because I'm rubbish on steep cracks.

Beautiful climb, well protected, pumpy, just excellent! Always a jug when you need one. Easily as good as the other E1s and the top out isnt that bad at all

grp - Lead - 16/Feb/13

Don't know why the guide-book is sniffy, cos I thought is an excellent route. Top out is very loose though.

Kirill - TR - 18/Sep/11 with Paul Bolton

Went up this after falling off The Goblin King. Not able to do the very top section due to the top rope following the wrong line.
Ant Man Bee - TR - 18/Sep/11 with Kirill Spiridonov

Really not my day today. Started with the lead, but climbed very inefficiently and with the wrong mind set. Got to just below the corner and switched off mentally and started feeling pumped, down climbed for the second time and handed it over to Jack and then seconded. Pathetic effort, but great route!
Stanners - 2nd O/S - 31/Aug/11 with 4 x Martins Friends, Martin Stanfield, Jack Bradbrook

Was meant to be Robs lead but after climbing the sequence up to the crux a couple of times he decided that he didn't have the energy left for it I decided to do it so we could get the gear out more easily. As a pose to doing another route and then abseiling down it to get the gear out.
