79m. A nice route, making the most of the pleasant rock on the rib, and avoiding the vegetation in the grooves. Start at a detached block leaning against the main crag 1) 26m. Up over the block and follow a chimney to gain a tricky move left to a ledge. Scramble back and left to belay in the corner 2) 20m. Move right to gain the rib proper and follow it until a belay in the right-hand groove can be reached 3) 30m. Gain the arete on the left which is followed to a groove and then the top. © ROCKFAX

Martin led all
John Roe - 2nd - 05/Oct/13 with Martin Coleman

Nice grip, but some serious exposure. Also best avoided when not too cloudy because the cloud decends here fast!

Don't know what the other folk are on about. It's a really nice route. Lots of gear, all solid rock, excellent position. But stay and belay on the route, makes for a more continuous climb.
Karlos - Lead O/S - 09/Jul/13 with Ian Archer

Nice climb, not that loose or grassy. Excellent friction.
Ian Archer - 2nd O/S - 09/Jul/13 with Karl Stewart

Hidden - AltLd - 16/Aug/12

Loose, chossy, muddy, and bugger all gear. Lead it all; 2nd and 3rd as one (suggested belays rubbish, just stick to the rib). 1st pitch horrible, good climbing on the rib for the second two.

Led P1 which was OK. P2 is by far the best and P3 is even more chossy than the first!

P2 good, other two dire. Very cold.
jezb1 - AltLd - 03/May/10

Great P2, Poor P1 and P3, too much grass, Not worth a star. Great veiws though.
mike_uk82 - AltLd - 03/May/10

The route feels delicate and poorly protected, but the situation and rock are excellent.

Fantastic route
fizzychewitt - AltLd - 21/Sep/08 with Francis

Rained off after pitch 2 - having already backed off Kirkus's route in the wet (K route did only get S in the 1975 guide we had with us so seemed a fair bet in the damp...)
