Rockfax Description
16m. Another big pitch with excellent bold climbing. Start at the right-hand side of the green streak at a shallow groove. Climb to the bulges then trend right through these to a crack. Swing swiftly back left and pull onto a ledge right on the arete. Finish up a thin crack splitting the top wall. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
One of the best E2s on the Moors. A confident approach is needed, and a strong arm to hold on. Friend 4 needed.

Ticklists: NYMoors Classics, Rockfall Northern England top 50.

Really enjoyed repeating this. Forgotten how good it is. Still think top move is much harder than 5b.

Lovely climb to last hard move.. just not quite strong enough!

Committing, then pumpy, rest.. then safe technical crux at the end where I hear it should be! Brilliant beginning to end.

Needed a few rests!

Could not sort out the top moves. Kept repeating the rest of it just to enjoy the moves again and again.

Great route, not sure what compelled me to warm up on it... Hardest bit it the top but there is a slightly bold section lower down.

flashed on Theo's gear because we were short on time

A great pitch. Protection Ok with plenty of cams. Top move is harder than 5b?

More like DNS. Good gear comes in the first breaks, moved through to the next big break and lay away hold fully expecting more gear and there was none :( ...moves going higher looked ok but bit bold for me today!

Matthew Ferrier 09/Jun/13 Lead O/S

Really good. Pretty pumpy until the ledge but by then it's pretty much done.

Jodgson 09/Jun/13 Lead dnf

Managed the first half, stupidly decided to rest holding a break, got way too pumped and slipped off. One day.

The best E2 I've done so far; reasonably protected, and the finish is just brilliant.

awesome. *** sustained, but good holds and cams.

Dave Warburton 09/Jun/08 Lead O/S

Superb, pumpy jug hauling and with positive holds inbetween. It's not exactly runout - have a good selection of Cams at hand and it can be VERY well protected! Did i mention it being pumpy?

Rich Guest 05/Jun/08 Lead O/S

Rock solid E2. Committing, pumpy and bold. Technically hard at top crack. Not suggesting I'm rock solid at E2... got well messy, but glad to manage to free it onsight all the same

Bev backed off the second and some random guy tied on instead. He fell from the last move.
