Rockfax Description
22m. Long and varied. Up the left edge of the flaky slab then move right to a long crack which leads to a ledge. Move right and pull over the roof following the crack and its steeper continuation. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Alternative start on lowest boulder. Then pad up next slab - one piece of protection low down - to good ledge. Then straight up middle before going for chockstone in 'chimney' for right foot, and on to bivvy site. (Or attempt to reach chockstone from below). Employ six foot long leg to surmount overhang and pad up slab (or go right round the corner for a short man's alternative). Finally attack the summit blob in one way or another

This must be one of the longest severes on Yorkshire Grit. High stepping flexibility is a big help! Good pitch.

A good solo just feels like 4 boulder probs with all the ledges in between

A great expedition, soloed to check the route was OK after Becky was unsure about leading this as another team was having a hard time on this. Was ok but solid 4b in places and tough for Severe.

Team ascent: Graeme soloed it twice, I led it once, Dad seconded it once, and Mum seconded about a third of it. Good effort by Mum, who was defeated by her muscles rather than her head.

Found the chimney green and a right brawl. Had to put in a hex to pull on. The rest of it was decent.

Very good! Delicate slab, grimy chimney, then a bit of a boulder problem

Failed the lead so handed over to JK, thought it was quite hard for severe.
