Rockfax Description
Climb the pleasant groove until level with the tree, then move right awkwardly (large cam) into a narrow rift to finish. Escaping left into the chimney is a grade easier but feels like a cop-out. © Rockfax

Easy to miss hold on upper wall & hand-traverse the break - increasing difficulties considerably!

Really enjoyed this - typical gritstone moves in the groove, a nice traverse and chimney finish

Well protected throughout, though the traverse would be quite bold without big cams. The traverse is what makes the route, the rest is nothing special.
