The steep red wall forming the left wall of the arch is much easier than it looks. After a straightforward start, head up and right to a good flake then either go left to the first hole, or straight up on good crimps to a big finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
On the opposite side to Arch Enemies, the steep red wall is much easier than it looks! After the initial easy start head up and rightwards to a good flake then continue either moving left to the first obvious hole, or climb straight up on good crimps and a big move to finish.

Possibly the best/most unique route of the grade within the Peak

Not sure where the loose bits were, as stated below, rock was impeccable. Easy going until after the 3rd clip where it became a bit crimpy and I was thrown off a bit by the guide saying you could go direct on the last move, definitely go left into the big holes! Took me ages to figure out to undercut the first hole, then easy enough to the next two jugs. Quality climb, difficult to on-sight I think.

Couple of worryingly loose bits. First climb back after several months off, so pretty psyched I haven't completely forgotten how to climb.

Sam Watson 25/Mar/17 Lead RP

Slipped off first time, whoops. Great, steep climbing. Just ignore the streams of people going up to the cave. Definitely coming back to work the 7a+
