Rockfax Description
The slanting groove is one of the few really hard trad routes on Peak Limestone. Rarely climbed, it remains an important tick for the aspiring. The hard lower wall (the 6c bit) is protected by wires in the break and the bolt on Boring. Above this, only tenacity and a will to survive will get you to the top. There is a wire to aim for, and a good skyhook, but there is a ground-fall to worry about before you reach it. © Rockfax
