Rockfax Description
One of the best hard routes in the Peak with a powerful start, a tricky technical crux and a beautiful upper wall. The crux is height-dependant - there is no one-size-fits-all solution here though, and knee-pads are pretty much essential. There is a bolted direct version which is still a project.

βeta: Friend of mine snapped off a foothold through the traverse bit on the crux today. He was using it for a bit of a kneebar (not the usual one) so might mean a bit of a sequence change for some.
