Rockfax Description
20m. Gain the hanging crack from the right by a swift hand-traverse (or direct at 5b) and jam it to a possible stance on the big ledge. Finish up the groove to a tricky exit. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A gritstone classic which attacks the front of the Main Buttress via the obvious hanging crack. Start either direct or via a hand traverse in from the right. From the ledge (original belay point) continue up the corner crack to a rounded finish.

Tom Cranfield, Alfie Beanland 1949

Didn't get above the traverse. Hard move to mantel over the undercut bit, got my left hand up but didn't have any energy left in the tank and jumped off. Seems a really hard move, I'm relieved to see others agreeing. I will go back stronger and lighter and better (or stay away from it forever more)

Jumped off the 5a(?) start and did the 5b instead, hard bit's shared by both and it's tough. The cracks are luminous, the top-outs on both pitches are turf pulling and it's a load of bollocks.
