Rockfax Description
A bizarre route, said to be the longest roof pitch on grit and not one for a busy day. From the start of Kirkus's Corner make an awkward move out left then traverse the lip of the roof all the way to a finish up the left arete. © Rockfax

Fully inverted with high heel hooks at the start, hanging on the break in mid air after cutting loose and had a lie down in the break halfway up Flying Buttress Direct. Super ***
