Rockfax Description
A moorland classic; worth the hike up. High in the grade. Start in a green corner below the roof and trend left past the arete. Climb straight up the steep wall then trend strenuously rightwards through the bulges, keeping just above the lip of the overhang, to a tricky pull to ledges (possible stance). From here finish up and left via a final delicate slab or sneak off up Central Climb. © Rockfax

βeta: did this on wednesday, my first e1(definitely claiming it!). found the final slab the most difficult part although the overhang's v pumpy,without it the route would be hvs i think but the slab's unprotected and just tricky really, just making it low e1 for me(or indeed e0!). it doesnt seem particularly logical to the line though and is different to all of my old guides which show the route, then a hvs, escaping off to the right. anyway, fantastic, wonderful route and highly recommended.

βeta: A superb route. If you don't like unprotected slabs, miss out the top couple of metres for an HVS 5a/5b tick. An easy escape out left is possible.

I started sprinted through them but by the time I stopped I was quite run out amid not too many decent gear options, hence regreted bypassing gear below. Fortunately the enormous sideways jug and bomber cam wasn't too far away.

Misha 30 Aug, 2008 Lead O/S Jugtastic HVS 5a, not particularly pumpy and with good gear. Final steep slab looked like it would go at 5a on the right hand side so went for the higher left hand side for more of a challenge. Hardest and scariest topout I've ever done ensued, heelhooking whilst pulling on poor slopers and with the prospect of a fall onto some nice rocks on the ledge below the slab, greasy day as well, just about made it... E4 6a? PS: midges got pretty evil.
