14m. Climb the deeply-recessed V-groove until forced to step right onto the rib at the level of the roof. Pull straight up into a thin crack just above and use this to reach easier ground. © ROCKFAX

Really nice route with thoughtful, careful footwork getting out of the corner. Watch out for a very large loose block at the top. You'll probably try to get a nut behind it, then realise the bottom bit is loose. When you set up your belay and accidentally stand on the top of it, you'll realise the whole block is loose!

Another good en. Feels pretty bold moving round corner out of groove but big holds thereafter.

Did the crux round onto the face and up a move, place protection but pumped and had to retreat right through Lancaster Flyby.
