SMC Description
200m. A long and interesting traverse starting at Kestrel Crack and ending at The End!
1. 20m Follow Kestrel Crack until just below the huge flake. Traverse right to the angular flake on Twisted Rib.
2. 20m Continue horizontally right to the cracked blocks on The Groove.
3. 30m 4c Descend diagonally right to join Wriggle and climb up this to gain slabs at the top.
4. 40m Continue by a long easy traverse descending slightly over sloping slabs to a belay on a ledge on Cuticle Crack.
5. 40m Continue across Hairy Gully and the upper slabs of Springboard, before descending to a tree belay in the recess of Chute.
6. 30m Traverse easily to the grassy bay on the second pitch of Terminal Buttress.
7. 20m 4c Traverse the slab on the right beneath the overhang and finish through the break as for The End. © SMC

Mostly surprisingly easy ground but nice positions. Crux was getting past the brambles in Hairy Gully, after which the route is less interesting anyway (apart from the End exit pitch, which is always a pleasure). No idea where the 30m pitch 6 described in the book was hidden btw

I lead 1, 3 while Carl lead 2, 4. We exited after that through the top of Cuticle Crack.
