40m.

Rockfax Description
Climb the steep slanting crack in the left wall of the slabby groove to a niche with a tree. Step left and climb a short groove to a ledge on the right. From here the original line finished up vegetated rock up left to join Gut Ache Grooves but a better finish is to move up into the red corner and then make a great traverse right into Garrotter up which the route finishes. No change in grade but a second tricky section. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the steep slanting crack in the left wall of the slabby groove (knobbly!!) then where it ends step left into the continuation groove. Up this until Guts Ache can be joined. Note that the line for this route marked on the topo in Peak Limestone Rockfax is actually that of Chopping Block (E2)- follow the left hand crack then move left again.

FA. Jack Street, Bruce Andrews late 1960s 1967

βeta: The normal finish moving up and into Guts Ache Groove is poor. A much better finish is to move right up the groove above and then make a tricky but excellent traverse right into Garrotter.
