Rockfax Description
Climb awkwardly onto the slab and trend left, passing the metal boomerang to a stance on the arete. Step back right and follow the thin crack just right of the arete and the pleasant groove directly above. © Rockfax

mrphilipoldham 15 Aug Lead O/S Bold start, but easy after the first move.. doesn't quite warrant the HVS in the Lancs guide.

jonathan_doyle 26 Sep, 2018 Lead O/S Get's HVS 4c in the new Lancashire Rock Guide - probably due to the insane runout at the start. Not sure why the great slab only gets VS since it's the same run out start as for this route.

radddogg 25 Jul, 2017 Lead O/S Totally unprotected at the start up to the metal tack, a fall from here would be unpleasant hence the new guide giving this HVS 4c. The initial off the ground move was the most bizarre move I've ever completed on rock. Had this move been higher up it would probably get E2.
