Rockfax Description
The imposing rounded arete is low in the grade (which is nice) and quite superb - a moorland classic. A crack and groove leads out to the arete at half-height. This gives sustained climbing (big cams) to an exciting finish up the pocketed headwall that might leave you gasping and grasping. © Rockfax

Neil McA 22 Apr 2nd rpt Nice to follow Jake up this 25 years after leading it. Quality route, E2 5b is correct. It is eminently protectable but as it says ‘with a bold feel’.

Dave Musgrove 20 Apr 2nd β Superb and classic high moorland route. A bit intimidating given the scrittle and glad David led this one but it went okay for my first grit extreme of the year.

Graeme Hammond 1 Sep, 2012 Lead O/S Have to agree with the new guide this isn't E3 but is steady E2 though probably still 5c. VS jamming until the traverse left, then with bomber cams lay back the arête (despite the good gear this feels a bit bold) then stroll up the juggy head wall. Stunning :)

Mike_Hayes 11 Aug, 2012 Lead O/S Awesome - To say low in grade for E2 and 5b in BMC guide is a bit harsh. Thought pretty full on.

Neil McA 30 Aug, 1999 2nd rpt While checking for the Over the Moors guide. Revised my previous view of E1 and decided on E2 which i think is correct.
