110m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
110m. One the of great classic buttress routes of the Lakes. Starts just left of the foot of the buttress below a chimney. 1) 25m. Climb an open groove then a narrow offwidth chimney to a big ledge. 2) 30m. Make a tricky move up off the ledge then move left into the open groove line until an exit back right can be made onto a good ledge below a steep crack. 3) 30m. Climb the steep crack followed by some bold moves across the slab on the left and a traverse into a steep right facing corner (possible belay). Thin moves up the corner and the chimney above lead to a stance. 4) 25m. Move either left or right and climb easier ground to the top of the buttress. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The grade given in the Rockfax database is incorrect. The correct grade is V, 6 (as per the current guide).

Mr. K 4 Dec, 2010 2nd β Tried to lead the first pitch, couldn't find any reasonable gear before the initial groove so I handed the reins over to Andy. Route got harder and harder so I stayed gibbering as a second. Pitches felt something like 5, 5, 6, 6 to me but it was pretty much out of my league so difficult for me to say! Very little ice or frozen turn so it was hunting for small hooks under a thick covering of snow the whole way. We bailed from a large block very near the top as darkness, exhaustion, dehydration and the beginnings of hypothermia were sucking the fun out of the party. Got back to civilisation just in time to call off the mountain rescue callout our worried friends had put in. An incredible day!
