Rockfax Description
A popular direct on Sardine. Climb directly up from the start, up the short groove via hard moves to gain the ledge on Sardine. Follow this to a jug then move up right and climb past an overlap and a couple of well-spaced bolts. Finish up right. © Rockfax

FA. Steve Lewis 1984. The wobbly holds at the start survived for years before finally falling off in the winter of 1998/99.

Ticklists: Peak limestone north graded list - sport.

Felt surprisingly easy in the end. I don't think this is any harder than Sardine overall.

Nice climbing, couldn't quite do the move from the pinch, but wasn't well warmed up.

My first 7c, went after four goes over two sessions. Great route, has some good moves, especially the low crux move off the pinch. The top section has some really nice climbing too - my first route at the Tor.

1 toprope 2 weeks ago. Another last night, then got it first redpoint. Brilliant climbing all the way. Much better line than sardine. Right up my street

Really did Sarside, the traverse into and out of Sardine/Tin of. Really struggled and fingers v cold, but the top few feet were good. Cheers Matt for holding the rope in the cold.
