105m, 5 pitches. A long combination of pitches which takes in the best bits of Aplomb and Sirplum after a poor start on the wall and grassy ledges left of the big bulging arete. A more sensible way of doing this route is to just start up the Stalk and finish up Aplomb/Sirplum combination which is actually just Aplomb with its variation finish.
1) 4c, 20m. Climb the wall left of the arete to a ledge, then continue up the wall above trending right to a grassy ledge in a bay.
2) 5a, 20m. Traverse the break rightwards around the corner into The Stalk and follow this to the top of the corner and belay.
3) 4c, 15m. Traverse right above the roof to belay in the corner. Aplomb pitch 2.
4) 5a, 30m. Step down and hand-traverse the break in a wild position to belay on a pedestal. Aplomb pitch 3.
5) 5a, 20m. Move left of great holds to a groove then climb to the top. Sirplum half of pitch 2.

Led Pitches 2, 4 running together with 5. One of the better 6 pitch adventure routes in the peak. 1st pitch bit of a chossy overgrown horrorshow, 2nd ledge shuffle followed by some nice swinging around on jugs along the break, 3rd vs corner, 4th ok gear bit chossy drop into pitch 5 more swinging around on jugs along a break and bad rope drag, before the finale up last pitch of Sirplum.

An excellent adventure.
