Rockfax Description
An odd route consisting of a series of mantels between stance-sized ledges. Trend right up the lower wall then left via polished steps to a final difficult grovel onto the last ledge. Walk off left, or better finish via the left-hand version of Hermitage Chimney Left, HS 4b, which is the shallow groove to its left. © Rockfax

βeta: That last grovel is the hardest move on grit for the tall, there is no room to get your body on and the jam is poor.

βeta: Did this yesterday, well a variation of it anyway as the guidebook photo is at a dodgy angle so couldn't really tell where to start or finish and i thought it was a great route there is a great move in the middle where where swinging up to the nxt ledge totally upside down. Love it.
