Rockfax Description
18m. An ancient route (well 1900) that starts up the tricky arete to the mid-height ledge. Traverse this all the way leftwards to the diagonal crack and finish up this. There isn't much gear, but then again, it isn't very hard. © Rockfax

Howard J 16 Jul, 2017 Lead O/S The old guide has the start going up the slab directly below the pocket and this is the route I took - very technical. The arete is an easier start. I know Yorkshire grades are traditionally gnarly, but V Diff? If you'd told me VS I wouldn't have argued. Delicate and poorly protected, especially the final section where even with gear you face a ground fall. I'll obviously need to grow a pair if I'm going to climb in Yorkshire.
