126m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fine old classic that takes an intricate line up the slender slab on this side of the West Buttress. The first route to breach the imposing West Buttress. Start at the foot of The Black Cleft.
1) 20m. Scramble across easy ground to a block and traverse right to a ledge below the narrow slabby corner.
2) 4a, 25m. Climb the slabby corner to a belay in the base of the widening chimney-crack.
3) 4b, 12m. Climb up the chimney and slab above either on the left (easier) or by pulling out right and traversing back above (better) to a belay on the right.
4) 35m. Easy climbing leads up the slab to a crevassed ledge on the right.
5) 4c, 25m. From the right end of the ledge, pull up steeply over the overhang on good but space holds. Then move right into and up a chimney. This leads to easier ground and the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Excellent, exposed climbing after a wet and loose start. First main slab pitch very long to get a stance with decent belays (35m) just by the 'Faith and Friction' bit.

JL Longland, AS Pigott, FS Smythe, W Eversden, M Wood May/1928

Steve Clegg 27 Jul AltLd The crag was shrouded in mist which only cleared briefly once or twice; very atmospheric. The route was dank and all the climbing felt hard, including the ungraded pitch. I only just scraped up the last pitch by adopting a front crawl style. It started raining as we coiled the ropes and the scramble down to sacs was unrelenting. A full on, type-2 fun day.

rowland penty 25 May AltLd Clouds descended just after we started, bringing rand and drizzle. Did pitch 3+4 together in the soaking wet, slippery lichen on everything, was even scared standing on a flat ledge it was so slippery. I'd give it E1 in the wet for fear. Abseiled down from the big ledge because it was getting even wetter.

eb202 21 Apr 2nd O/S Overall not a great route, but it is in a nice position. Even though the climbing is pretty steady, the amount of hollow, loose rock (including a sizeable section on P2/3 - we linked - that can be climbed around) and poor protection spoil the experience somewhat. The first pitch was sopping and unpleasant, with slippery vegetation to clamber over, even after a dry period.

Mike505 21 Apr Lead O/S Had a fun...ish day on this. P1 is straight forward enough, the start to P2 is bold with what I thought to be the second hardest move of the route, linked P2 and P3. Gear is there but spaced and there are a lot of hollow sounding holds with some loose sections that can be climbed around (there were a few placements that I didn't use due do rock quality). P4 continues a similar theme but with easier climbing. P5 start is fun and can be well protected. All in it was a bit of a one move wonder with some "out there" positios for the grade.

Simul climb for that and the first 3 pitches with Freddie leading. I lead the last 2. Moves on the 4c pitch were nice but short, and went up the wrong chimney (left) after that, with lots of loose and suspect rocks! Beware! Managed to watch the sunset after topping out. Still took us about 3 hours to do this, need to be more efficient at placing and removing gear, as well as climb faster. Good day out!

George_Surf 27 Jun, 2018 Lead O/S Guiding 1 person, overall didnt think it was up to too much; some suspect rock, bad/lack of gear, poor stances and only really good moves on the top crux. its in a nice position though, and exposed. the 2nd and 3rd belays arent obvious, ended up running p2+3 and probably part of p4 together. Crux is good and steep but over very quickly

Private Flounder 7 May, 2017 AltLd Absolutely amazing route through incredible territory. We had an epic though! Pretty sure we got our route finding all wrong on P5. Anyway, I slipped and fell towards the end of P5(?), one rope frayed on sharp rock and snapped, the other caught round a flake and pretty much saved my life! I was left hanging in mid air, upside down. Climbed back up I-don't know-what and escaped! Later realised that the second rope wasn't far off snapping too. Very glad to be alive! I genuinely thought I was a gonner!

smolders 9 Aug, 2014 AltLd O/S P1 is a slippery scramble. P2 is a nice pitch, but in my enthusiasm I went past the belay and then spent some time trying to find a suitable place to stop on the slab on P3. Cameron ran the remainder of P3 and P4 together. I did P5 - the overhang looks intimidating, but is easier than it appears.
