Rockfax Description
Climb right of the arete then monkey left to gain its front face. Continue up the left-hand flank apart from a couple of moves on the right a short distance below the top. A Direct Start is a less satisfying VS 4c. There is a possible stance in the shallow recess of the Pulpit if needed. © Rockfax

Another great route that proved challenging Had to traverse left early on to get some pro which on a single rope meant a lot of drag

The bottom in particular is quite entertaining.

Sue finished up the cracks on the right, which seems the natural line after the moves right

Really nice route. Balancy in places and thuggy in others, a nice mix.

Bit of a sandbag, in all senses of the word!

Started but too green to do with the light fading - backed off

monkey moves left are good value, better than it looks though a little more traffic wouldn't go a miss.

The picture of Andy Scrase soloing this in Dave Jones's "Rock Climbing in Britain" just sums up gritstone for me.
