90m, 6 pitches.

Rockfax Description
One of the finest climbs at this grade in the Pass. The final pitch has a tough and exposed 4c mantel, though it can be easily avoided if required.
1) 4a, 30m. Pull steeply onto the well-worn ledge and follow the groove leftwards to ledges. Stride left and climb diagonally leftwards up a thin corner to a short crack. Climb this to belay below an overhang. A sparsely-protected pitch.
2) 4a, 10m. Traverse right under the overhang to a chimney and climb this to a ledge.
3) 4b, 15m. Climb the thin crack in the slab on the left. Pass a ledge, step up onto another ledge and walk right to belay beside a large pinnacle.
4) 4a, 18m. Climb the pinnacle, move right onto a ledge. Climb the crack in the left wall of the corner above to another ledge.
5) 4c, 15m. Head up and right to a ledge which ends at a well-protected, but extremely exposed and slippery mantel onto a rounded ledge. Move left and climb the wonderful arete to the rock summit. © Rockfax

Absolutely incredible route, fully deserving of its 3 stars. I led pitch 2 and 4. Pitch 2 onwards is first class climbing, from delicate slabby traversing and face climbing, to jamming up clean crack lines, an awkward step out right from a large pinnacle onto a ledge with poor handholds (foot jam is the key!) and culminating with the crux right at the end in the form of a ridiculous polished mantleshelf which we tackled with all the grace of a pair of beached whales!

We did this as part of an enchainment day so decided to move together on it, which was probably a mistake given that we were wearing rucksacks and it was a bit damp. A step right at the first 'belay' was scary as hell in the wet, although looked green enough regardless, and I put Thom back on Belay as he went over it, deciding to pitch jot from there. The crux move is debatable RE its grade, but definitely stiff with a rucksack on, and gear goes where the fingers have to, so not easy for the leader. Don't know what people rave about - I did not enjoy the climb.

Blake 12/Apr/14 AltLd O/S

A bit of an underwhelming climb in my opinion. For a start, the guidebook description (rockfax) is rubbish. I would recommend doing this in 2 pitches if you have decent 60m halves. Join pitches 1,2,3 then 4,5 together. Most of the 5 pitches have nice qualities, but would be enjoyable if they were all 3-4 times bigger. The mantle is a piece of cake and not desperate at all, then the 'glorious arete' is about 4 feet tall! The mantel is no more than 4b. Finally 'dangerous 60m abseil' down the gully is basically a simple scramble down. Have done much worse ones at Stanage. There is ab tat on most pitches if you wanted to do a multi pitch ab to get off rather than use the east or west gully.

First multipitch lead, chuffed I did it clean, climbing near my limit here. Ran pitches 1 and 2 together, easy, enjoyable climbing. Pitches 3 and 4 also together, a little trickier especially as I accidently climbed the crack on the right of the slab (part of Lorraine) which is 4c Parts of this were a little desparate. Nice move coming off pinnacle and on to the slab of pitch 5. Found the crack a little tricky to negotiate, maybe running out of steam? I really wanted to do the mantleshelf of pitch 6 but couldn't commit. Had to take the easier route on the left which proved to be trickier than expected. Definitely tired by this point. Lots of lovely vaired climbing.

Bob Caulkwell led, I found the top pitch rather trying while undoing a runner on the ledge before mantelshelf I dropped a Mars bar, it didnt touch until near the bottom. Led it several times since And enjoyed it every time but still find the top pitch hard even though I am nearly 6ft tall
