50m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The eye-catching line up the nose of the buttress. Start left of the base of the nose, at a steep slab with a short finger-crack up to its right.
1) 5b, 30m. Climb up the slab, move right and pull past an overhang (with difficulty) into a corner that leads to a ledge (possible belay). Traverse left to an open groove and climb this to where easier ground leads up the rib on the right to ledges and a belay next to a large block.
2) 4b, 15m. From the top of the block, finish up the slab and rib. © Rockfax

todness 9 Oct, 2016 AltLd Stolen from winter. A great lakeland route with a history of a lunatic first ascent. wire on first pitch totally broken but prevents easy placement of desirable protection before commitment. 2nd Pitch (Chadders) needs steady head, rock sound and rough.
