Rockfax Description
The superb blank groove can be approached from a short way up Edge Lane by a tricky traverse (5c), a pile of stones or a f6C problem. The crucial upper section has an old cemented peg runner in the right wall, between the two cruxes. Finish using a tiny chipped hold. From the terrace continue up the easy corner, or abseil carefully from the chipped spike. © Rockfax

hamer89 20 Mar, 2014 Lead RP Classic frightener from way back, one solitary peg to aim for. Felt nice clipping this. Gave it a proper clean as was filthy and climbed it a few times on the grigri

Rob Greenwood - UKClimbing ?Oct, 2013 Lead β Abbed down to check the peg beforehand. Considering its age it looked ok, didn't realise it was concreted in either! Could be backed up well with a large Alien.

Seb Grieve 12 Jul, 1987 Lead O/S Tried the start many times before succeeding. It was tricky at E4. Now see it is given E5 which is more like it since the top part was not too easy. Would be very serious without the peg. I combined it with Great Arete to make a super long single pitch route.
