Rockfax Description
Brilliant fingery climbing up the thin crack-line in the wall right of the arete. Climb the wide crack and move up to a ledge on the arete. Move right (pegs) and up via fingery moves to better holds and continue up the thin crack (pegs) to meet a left-leading groove. Follow the groove strenuously to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Borrowdale's best sport climb up the thin arcing crack and top slanting groove, past about 18 pegs and a very hard crux at the start of the crack.
