38m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An old classic finding a sneaky way up the crag's tallest face. The route is relatively easy for VS but oddly it is hard work all the way!
1) 4b, 14m. Shin up the wide crack with difficulty and hidden holds to a hard exit and a stance at the base of the main corner.
2) 4c, 14m. Climb the tough wide groove (okay, it may be 5a) past a ledge (stance?) to a bigger picnic-style ledge on the left.
3) 3c, 10m. The groove above the ledge to a rightwards exit (direct is harder), or the one out to the right (4b). © Rockfax

βeta: Major classic!!!!!! The first pitch is definitely the crux, the awkward crack on pitch 2 is not at all hard and the route should be HS 4b in comparison to other gritstone classics.

JoeFoster59 18 Jun, 2017 AltLd rpt Another late night climb I think we started up at 1am. This time even more tired I managed to pull it together and lead the first pitch(even better since I retreated from the solo earlier in the day) pretty straightforward with a bit of reach and some offwidth technique. Once again staying awake on the belay ledge was the crux. Freddie got the tricky second pitch made even harder by an abandoned birds nest on the useful hold in the back of the crack after udging my way up I met them at the base of Final Crack which was lovely apart from a near bird attack. Another great adventure in the dark.

Rach found the cheaty diversion out to the right, but I convinced her she'd missed the best bit of the climb, so she asked to be lowered back down to take it on. After successfully tackling the off-width, I could see she also had that perfect balance of feeling utterly sick and utterly satisfied. The third pitch out to the right was more awkward than it looks, with holds just not quite in the right place/angle.

jimorothy 18 Oct, 2008 Lead Did in two pitches. The first crack is not too bad once you're into the mix, though where are these internal holds - I found one? The 'awkward second' is really tricky, though not exposed. I had to employ a ridiculous arse and footing technique, sitting on the smear face and hardly using my hands at all, until getting high enough to switch around. The top is fine. Either the chimney or the crack, both the same difficulty in my view.

I found Pitch 1 very awkward - saved by a fist jam at the top and desperate thrutching. Pitch 2 was another thrutch facing rightwards. Both very memorable. Belayed beside Barry (who was on K2) on the top and just as Maria topped out the heavens opened and all hell let loose. Had to rescue Heather with a top rope - she was screaming her head off. Very exciting. Finished off with Hartington ale and chips at the Travellers.
