Rockfax Description
A tour-de-force for its time that combines great atmosphere and rock with clever route finding.
1) 5c, 18m. Move right to a slab and up to a thin crack in the wall above. Go round the arete on the right onto a wall then up to a flake and gear on the right. Now move up left to less steep ground, before moving up right to a thin crack. Locate a hold that allows a couple of moves right to be made to reach a stance and belay below a long corner.
2) 5a, 30m. Climb the slab and corner - another fine pitch. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Another superb classic taking the exposed grooved arete above Hobson's Choice on perfect rock by way of some varied and absorbing climbing. A must do.

davkeo 4 Jul, 2018 AltLd O/S Did p2, which was bold! Also technical & brilliant. I notice this route has been included in a ticklist called ‘Classic safe Lakeland e2/e3’. I wouldn’t describe it as safe. You probably won’t deck out if u fell off but you might go a very long way. There’s 2 cruxy bits & both are airy & require some blind groping around in balanced positions. Anni did the VS first pitch & the 3rd (5a). P3 was really nice. V good climb.

Fist pitch is brilliant with engaging moves the the second felt like a brilliant HVS 5a and is pretty well protected via the crack to the left of the narrowing slab. Take an extra 1/2 set of nuts for the belays.
