65m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The route of the crag, great climbing up a big bulky buttress on lovely rock.
1) 4b, 32m. Climb the groove that leads to the overhangs and continue up until it gets too difficult. Then make a move round the rib on the right to a delicate foot-traverse right to a groove and soon, a large ledge and big fat tree belay.
2) 4b, 30m. Drop down and hand-traverse the huge flake out left then climb the face to a small ledge (possible stance on One Step..). Step up and make hard moves into the polished slanting groove. Finish either side of the roof above this. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A wonderful route. Head up and right to large ledge (belay). Then fabulously exposed 2nd pitch goes out left along the huge flake. Head up obvious line above, good holds. Tricky crux, entering the groove near top. 3 stars.

A fun climb never too hard or serious, some nice positions with a bit of exposure. I would definitely recommend abbing off , the walk off is possibly the worst and i climb at Helsby!! ;) I am told that a pair or 50m will get you down safely!

Still a great route but odd that the initial groove is choked with grass as if it had never been climbed before! Bit of an epic getting off. Could not find descent path and ended up down farmland at the other side of the crag and into the village. Note that the first abseil is 55m from the top.

Lead P1, excellent climbing, get steeper and trickier towards the slanting cracks. Had to step over to the right then back left into the crack, using the quartz as a handhold - took me a minute to figure. Big cam helped! Brilliant foot traverse! P2 again excellent with the hand traverse, rest of the climbing was enjoyable but straightforward. P2 took the leader a while as he couldn't commit to the slippery groove! It was tricky but a little thrutching reaches a good hold. Brilliant.

An interesting route, 4 stars surely! Solid at the grade, but i can see why people might suggest it's a hard 4b, for the odd move! Occasionally feels bold, due to potentially loose rock & exposure. Could not locate an easy path off, (overgrown descent?), but trees seem solid for double abseil - take sacrificial tat. Both pitches excellent.

In slaps. Charlie led p1. Rachel led the top but accidentally climbed the upper part of the direct line. Bold 4c move in the groove before the top. Hot

rachelpearce01 23/Aug/16 AltLd O/S

Charlie led the first pitch. I led the second.... Started off on the right route with the hand traverse. That felt pretty scary! Don't like hand traverses! And then I followed the black looking wall hence the name of the route, which was wrong. Finished off doing the vs 4c direct varitarion. No wonder it felt pretty hard at the time. Disco leg nearly kicked in. The step into the groove at the end was probably the hardest part due to not much gear and not much for the hands. But was fine and being able to see the end helped! All in all I need to get a bit better at navigating! I think my gear is improving though !

Lead the whole route. First pitch was quite steep and i didnt think the gear was all that good until near the top. Foot traverse was exciting and much easier than i expected it to be. Nice big belay ledge with amazing views. Pitch 2 gets off to an exciting start handtraversing on to the arete. Straight-forward moves and excellent gear lead to the final groove. Lots blank and impossible but there's tons of gear. Awkward pull in to the groove using a hidden crimp in the right wall, then you're at the top. In memory of Grandad, RIP.

Long time since I'd first done this route. I'd forgotten how great it is! It is hard for the grade. We also did Mensor which seemed easier to me. If there's any doubt about the second's ability to complete the hand traverse unaided it might be a good idea to belay on the good ledge about 20 ft above. Communication will be easier and 100 ft of rope will give a lot of stretch!
