Rockfax Description
A lesser-known Chee Tor gem which gives fine sustained moves but is close to E4. Climb the wall to a rest on the left. Make hard moves up and right, past a wafer-thin flake, into a groove. Climb this then keep going up left until one final hard pull gains the break. © Rockfax

FA. J.Fleming 1981 (1 pt.); FFA. D.Critchley shortly after..

βeta: The peg is now 24 years old and the wire I placed today to back it up fell out. Borderline E4.

βeta: Just remembered, John (Fleming) did this with a rest on the peg (although he can't recall it!). First free ascent was a few days after by Duncan Critchly I think, then me.
