Rockfax Description
16m. One of the easier hard classics of the crag - a great climb, devious but logical and interesting throughout. Start up the easy ramp then gain the hanging groove and climb it boldly to the break under the roof. Traverse right - plenty of gear but pumpy - to the slot in the roof and finish with a typical Northumbrian exit.
A Left-hand Exit is a cop-out at E3 5b and a Direct Finish is a harrowing E5 5c but misses out the best part of the route. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A dramatic route that is considerably better than it's crabwise shuffling would suggest. Climb the bold shallow scoop, the fingery and varied break, and final gutbusting pull over with continuous interest. Take anything from Zeros and Peenuts to large cams!
