Rockfax Description
24m. A major classic up the tallest buttress here and one of the very best routes on Western Grit. Climb a tricky crack, a bulge then steeper cracks to a long move on a pocket to reach a huge flake (long tape runner). Reach the slab and ledges then step left and finish up the fine jamming crack to an awkward bulging exit. © Rockfax

Got it the second time and the rest of the route was ok and having to repeat the finish on Bachelor's Climb (ever so pumpy!) was a pleasure all over again. Great route, shame a screwed up the jamming again after doing such a good job on Bachelor's Climb! Learning experience nevertheless and another great classic in the sack to make for a great finish to a great day!

Slab was exciting and finish up wide crack was great fun. Made falling off all the thrutchy VS's seem worth it. Belayed watching a glorious sun set while swallows played and falcon(?) hunted. Best line i've climbed on grit. Mel didnt have as much fun.
