The prominent groove and crack gives a fine pitch with a tricky start and tricky exit. Well protected throughout. The old grade of S 4a was a joke!

Always nice to do a new climb on Wharncliffe, worth the walk, very dry.

Dry. Needed to do this before inclusion in the new Rockfax guide makes it mainstream. Attempted once before when wet (raining) but never left the ground so calling it O/S. The start is hard for 5a but the route is only about severe after that.

A quick couple of moves gains easier ground. Was a bit dirty but well worth finding.

found the start a real struggle, rob had the poor etiquette to find it easy
