Rockfax Description
The deep groove has an awkward bulge early on and more tricky moves to leave the half-height niche. Not a bad effort for a century ago. An exposed exit up the arete to the right is a worthwhile variation. © Rockfax

Followed Marc up this route, came up slightly more left than when I did it with Marissa. Climbed the route altogether better than before, think new shoes may have helped

jennifers87 22/Jul/12 2nd dog

Followed Marissa up this, pretty akward start, slipped of a foot hold when I tried to switch feet, think I wasn't being as cautious as I would have been if I had been leading

leeds_belle 22/Jul/12 Lead O/S

The beginning of this route was the trickiest. The rock is a bit smoother than what is typical of Wharncliffe.

Seemed hard for a VD due to polish I think and a totally unrewarding climb!
