110m, 4 pitches. A good natural winter line, which roughly follows the line of the summer HVS Silent Witness for it's first two pitches then climbs an independent groove above. Start about 5m left of the start of Bowfell Buttress below and left of the obvious chimney fault line about 10m up the crag.
1: 20m (5) Climb up and slightly right to the base of the chimney and climb it to a block belay at it's top.
2: 25m (8) Move left from the belay and then up and left up a turfy groove to some in-situ tat. Move up and step left into a left facing corner below a small roof. Move right around the arĂȘte and out of the corner and pull through the roof with difficulty. Belay below the obvious groove above.
3: 20m (7) Enter the groove above with difficult and climb it to it's top.
4: 45m (3) A turfy romp remains.

Looking for Sinister Slabs but ended up falling this line which was considerably harder. Took leader fall from crux (pitch 2) but success was then achieved by leaving Rucksack behind for Gareth to carry up!

1: 25m (5) Climb up and slightly right to the base of the chimney and climb it moving left in to a turfy groove to some in-situ tat. 2: 25m (8) continue left on turfy groove for 2m before stepping right into slightly overhanging groove, continue up into a bay with a large pointy rock on the arête and step over the arête and continue up obvious groove to big ledges. 3: 45m (3) A turfy romp remains with optional challenges if desired.
