60m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A magnificent girdle covering impressive territory at a sustained but amenable grade. The best of its genre on grit!
1) 5b, 28m. Follow Sepulchrave to the end of its traverse and continue to Suicide Wall. Follow the same line then swing down to join Requiem above its crux and take the wide crack around the arete to a belay on the ledge on Five Finger Exercise.
2) 5b, 10m. Mantel down off the ledge then reverse Tiger Traverse to a stance in Owl Gully.
3) 5b, 10m. Climb up the gully and follow cracks out to the arete and a move up to a belay below the roof.
4) 5b, 12m. Traverse below the roof to round the arete and continue into Weston's Chimney - the logical line, or finish up Boot Hill for a better finale © Rockfax
