|20m. Start on the right hand side of the face at a slimy corner below a roof. A fine climb with plenty of atmosphere. Climb the corner past a projecting block to a cave, then cross the vertical left wall to a small stance on the front of the buttress. Climb the flake crack and then the steep groove above, to the top. The slimy corner at the start can be avoided by scrambling up to the cave and traversing left across the wall.|

Previously seconded Jim a few years back - absolutely brilliant and the bottom section was much drier and hence climbable this time. Honestly on the best HVS's on grit.

Fantastic route. Really great moves and excellent protection throughout. Felt very soft for HVS though.

We came back for it 3 years later. Bottom corner still wet. abseiled down line and gave it a bit of a clean. Wasn't anywhere near as dirty as i was expecting. Superb route and in reasonable condition at the moment. ACE
