50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
One of the great ticks in the Peak which reaches positions that other E1s don't - an amazing outing. Apart from one technical move at the start of pitch 2, it is never desperate, but it is pumpy and committing. Retreat from the nose is problematical so take your Prusiks if you are nervous. For this reason it makes it a poor route for an inexperienced second.
1) 4c, 25m. Climb up and right across the buttress to a comfortable ledge on the right of the main roofs.
2) 5b, 25m. Move left and make a powerful couple of pulls over the roof. Climb up left to a breather on a pedestal then surge up and left again on big holds, with increasingly brain-jellying exposure, to reach the very edge of the world. A hard pull gains a bridged rest (at last) in the final groove then amble up this with a grin as wide as the valley. Good gear mostly, although the effort of fixing the monster thread under the roof is probably not worth expending unless you are REALLY scared. © Rockfax

I led first pitch clean, Mark got to the thread and set up a belay for me to lead through as too pumped. I didn't get much further before I was resting every couple of moves on gear placed in a panic. Siege got me to easier groove. Epic. Could make all sorts of excuses but don't think I am close to getting this clean.

Another "Rogers" epic! Really hard move getting off the belay ledge, followed by a fall after the big thread = hanging in mid-air for a looooooong time before a lower off co-ordinated with the help of passing walkers.

Had seconded the route behind Steve Foster a few years earlier. Great route, done many times. Did again July 9th 2014 to see if I still could. 70 in 2 months so I may not be able to do it after 70!
