Rockfax Description
An odd route consisting of a series of mantels between big ledges. Trend right up the lower wall then left via polished steps to a final difficult haul onto the last ledge. Walk off left, or finish via the left-hand version of Hermitage Chimney Left, HS 4b, which is the shallow groove to its left. © Rockfax

βeta: Leaving the 3rd? ledge under the blocks/roof, I started with a heel hook out left and ended up with my whole left leg on the ledge and my foot in the break. I could virtually hands-off like that.

βeta: Did this yesterday, well a variation of it anyway as the guidebook photo is at a dodgy angle so couldn't really tell where to start or finish and i thought it was a great route there is a great move in the middle where where swinging up to the nxt ledge totally upside down. Love it.
