45m. It takes a thin crack left of Lakeland Cragsman. Follow the thin crack up the slab and through the overlap. Continue more easily up the crag.

The hardest of the three HVS and probably the best. Superb line full of interest, with a definite crux move at the overlap.

Taps aff! Not sure whether down to this (or perhaps it's just low in the grade), but the lead felt fine. Pink hue of back certainly attributable to lack of clothing thou!! Good route, dry in upper section.
