70m, 2 pitches. The prominent vertical crackline near the right edge of the slabs. Scramble up to beneath the crack. 1, 35m 5b Follow the crack (possible belay at 20m) through an awkward bulge high up then slightly right and direct to a thread belay. 2, 35m 5b Continue in the same line up the steep wall above the belay then the fine crack above.
This route was given a good clean, tat replaced and krabs left at belays/abs in June 2011.

Realistically the Steeple should have been our last route of the day, but we couldn't resist the allure of wet + greasy rock. With that in mind the route's condition didn't disappoint: there was barely a dry hold on it! Possibly the finest wet rock lead of my life. So much fun (all of which was retrospective).

Brilliant, well worth the wait. Did the VS access pitch up the lower slabs, led first pitch, top pitch slightly damp but didn't affect holds.

Fantastic climbing, well worth the up and down faff. If it went on for a few more pitches it would be 4* also.

Fine climbing but could do with another pitch or two! A little wet higher up.

Seriously good climbing. 2 very good pitches with a lot of faff to get up and down from start. Led 2 which was quite wet in a few places but didn't affect the quality. Probably first lead since the winter, had to dig out some placements.

Good route. Linked P1 and 2 together - seems sensible.

A little disappointing, great line with some nice bits, but not super memorable and needs a clean really....felt quite tough for E2 too....
