35'. Start just left of the left arete that bounds the front face of the crag. Climb the steep wall via an OHung niche to the top. It is also possible to traverse RWs above the OHs (on rounded holds) and then climb to the top.

CmSpencer 18 Aug Lead O/S Memorable, beautiful setting. Awkward getting in and out the niche. Lead with a couple of pieces of gear left in down low by Nick after his go.

Joecartmell 5 May, 2018 Lead Have to say relatively hard for a Vs, but I think HVS would be a bit too far. Crux was traversing and exiting the niche, don't think long legs helped for this bit!

Lumbering Oaf 31 Oct, 2017 Lead O/S Wow! What a sublime struggle. Getting into the niche was tough, and getting out again was awkward. This route gives you value for money - hard for VS!

AngelaC 28 Aug, 2017 Lead dnf Tough VS! I didn't feel confident to enter niche with gear too far below - would have been happier with a 31/2 or 4 cam to protect the move - a shame as it looked like a 'Harrison's type climb'!
