The classic corner crack with a truly epic feel to it. Probably the best single pitch VS in the country.

jkarran 28 May, 2016 Lead Great route that felt long, steep and intimidating after a few months off climbing while never actually being hard. Generally solid rock despite the disconcertingly hollow sounding patch at 20ft and it'll take more decent gear than you could carry. Wonderful location and a route that's been on my list for years.

duncana 10 Apr, 2016 Lead Had planned to have a day's climbing elsewhere, but a lazy start meant this fitted perfectly, on a lovely sunny sprint day. Awesome route, weird limestone which is soft and eroded, but with large harder 'pebbles' that don't erode and you can get hands around, and lots of threads for slings. Mostly well-balanced bridging all the way up. Pippa claims I took ages to climb it.

allmag 22 Jul, 1987 Lead O/S Led this a couple of times before. This time the crag was shrouded in dense mist and, on the upper part of the route, we could have been in the Dolomites - hugely atmospheric. A brilliant route but not for the faint-hearted; certainly not at Hard Severe: definitely feels VS (I see it's now upgraded to VS)
