The curving crack is gained from the left. Follow it and exit left. Steep breaks provide an excellent finish. An excellent route. VS in YG1.

Brilliant! Fairly tough into the hanging crack but the holds are perfect. Glad i finally brought a rope up. Tough VS seems about right?

A contender for Great Western

Mattyk 24/Aug/11 Lead O/S

Superb - well worth coming back for - I am tempted to decree the title of best mid-grade route in Yorkshire - as good as Great Western! but VS... ha ha ha . HVS 5a and not a soft touch at that.
