One of the Peak's best limestone climbs and a classic of the crag. A superb central line with a well-positioned crux.
1) 4b, 28m. From the ever-dry cave, climb the slabby right wall right, then left, into the main groove. Easier climbing leads to threads (chains) under the huge overhangs.
2) 5a, 20m. Move out left and climb the short juggy rib to the bulges (several old pegs). Pull rapidly over to easier-angled ground in the groove above, continuing to belay in the big holly. © Rockfax
