A classic graunch; well protected and quite bizarre though not too difficult for those used to gritstone weirdness.1) 5b, 14m. Traverse the lowest break to a vertical slot and wriggle up this with difficulty. Shuffle out to the arete (harassing for the short) to a fine stance and awkward belays.2) 5b, 14m. Roll off the ledge and use a tiny pocket to lunge for the spike. Continue left then pull up onto a short ramp back to the cliff top. This is the original line. The break in the north wall is sometimes followed all the way to the gully by mistake. © Rockfax
