3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A line and a half! The overhang-strewn corner requires a wide range of manoeuvres and, although polished to a high sheen, it is still a classic outing. Start at the base of the corner.
1) 4b, 9m. Squirm up the awkward wide crack to a cave belay.
2) 4b, 13m. Back-and-footing and bridging gains the start of a short traverse left on a hanging slab. Move left along the slab and up through a small overhang above it to a stance.
3) 9m. The narrowing-corner above ends at a stout tree belay. © Rockfax

Took a lot of imagination and 20 years of climbing experience to conjure up the techniques needed to complete the weird and awkward moves on pitch 2.

Harry Padley 11/Sep/17 Lead O/S

A brilliant route which stayed completely dry despite a heavy shower, most of it being under the big roof. Awkwardly placed a cam behind me before doing what felt like the crux move, just below the roof.

Great great, mad mad route. I tried my best at heavy drinking the night before, but did not quite manage the hangover required for the full Nick White tick. Instead I was merely the worse for wear.

Matt said 'Good lead, not good for three as top rope does not lay right, also rock is very polished, like glass.' SJC had done this once before with Chris Jones. On that occasion I was chicken and stayed tucked into the corner, so much that I took off my helmet and climbed up inside the chimney! On 2nd attempt with DOC & Matt I tried hard to make the climb 'cleaner'. This was successful, and I didn't take anywhere near as long. Matt had a bit of an eppy on his top rope, but I don't blame him. We got him through it.
