Classic. Climb the ledgy left arete then balance right into the beckoning groove. Up this delicately to ledges out right then step right again for a gritty finish. Harder for the very short. © Rockfax

On the way back from the Lakes. Top 50, what? Giving it one star for the line seems generous, mediocre climbing on sandy, polished holds with so-and-so gear placements. All finished off by a classic quarry top-out, Millstone-style. Not convinced.

Hugely ran out and not all that easy for VS, wouldn't be surprised to find out if someone hurt themselves on this. Despite that its a very nice climb, make sure to bring some micros it'll make life a bit less scary! Not sure about 3 stars but its certainly individual.
