Rockfax Description
14m. Superbly positioned climbing up the centre of the face then out to the dramatic, hanging right-hand arete. Photo on page 63. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start up the left hand end of the left face of the huge prow. Use a pocket to pull onto the face, then follow the obvious traverse (via a rather polished smear - crux) line to finish on big holds up the arete. Do it slowly to appreciate the exposure! 14m [P2]

Ticklists: A day out with Dolphin, The Complete Dolphin Collection, ARD Yorkshire Grit, Steve Ashton's 100 Classic Gritstone Climbs, The 3 star way to yorkshire gritstone's heaven.
