Rockfax Description
The next (broken) buttress. Trend left on good (loose?) holds and climb steeply to a ledge and tree belay. Climb onto a jutting block/ledge on the right and shuffle right again to finish up the exposed arete. Just about worth a star. © Rockfax

Great lower half. Final arête too covered in lichen to sensibly try on the solo so traversed right (quite sketchy - good feet no hands) to finish up the gully.

Loved the start, loved the foot traverse, and then the arete is covered in a thick coating of crusty lichen and short on gear. Managed eventually to reach a clean/decent hold on tiptoe; anyone even slightly shorter would be screwed.

Such an esoteric route for peak district gritstone.

Jack set up a belay well to the side, which left me effectively soloing the upper section, a fall would have been anything but pleasant.

Not pleasant and not severe. VS4b with a star in the new guide, deffo VS, not sure about the star!
