Rockfax Description
A classic Yorkshire E5 with excellent but unnerving climbing. Ascend the grassy ramp and move up to good holds. Stand on the good holds and climb to the main break via a flake - peg. There is a bush at the break with a peg and old bolt above and to the left. Gain a shallow groove on the left which leads to a ledge. Climb over the bulge and then pull round the roof to finish up a groove - peg. Lower-off. © Rockfax
