Rockfax Description
The groove just right with a jutting tombstone is a bit of a contrast to most things hereabouts, though it still requires advanced gritstone 'udging' techniques by most. Keep to the right of the initial rib. © Rockfax

Attempted to lead first but could not pull off the first hand jam tightly enough. Seconded by chimneying the crux bit, which will be my chosen method when i go back to lead it.

A nice route, harder than it looks. S 4b is probably about right, though high in the S grade. It was graded VD in 1951 :-)

Hmmmmm some confusion. the route book shows this route at S logbook showing it at HVD, my feelings is that S is the right grade..

I found the start a bit tough but really enjoyed the route. I hope this isn't a HVD. The guide book says S and I personally think even that's slightly under graded. Maybe we didn't follow the correct route.

Quite stiff for its grade with a steep start, the line we climbed was definately HS, although guide book was not clear. we climbed grooove to the right of the hanging rib, crossed this below the tombstone, then finished up LH side, Standing on the top of the tombstone to finish.

Severe in new Eastern Grit and I thought it felt tough for that grade! The start felt easier to chimney than to jam.
