Rockfax Description
Follow the central line under the arch and out to a belay around the back. The steep lower section leads to a big move to a jug. Above that things start getting technical. Stunning and unusual. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Follow the central line of bolts under the arch and out to a belay around the back. Sustained and powerful. A stunning and unusual route for the Peak - not to be missed!

Deema Mozayen 1 Jul Lead dog Good to get on this again, now nearly have it down to 2 parts. Thanks to Eddie for helping refine the beta and helping me believe it will go, perhaps even quite soon.

Harry Chaplin 11 Jun, 2017 Lead dnf Had a few goes dodging showers but lacked the energy for the top. Didn't think the climbing lived up to the logbook hype but maybe that's because I din't get the tick...?
