Rockfax Description
Some good upper pitches. Start as for Hiatus.
1) 4b, 30m. Pitch one of Hiatus.
2) 5a, 30m. Climb the main corner for 10m as for Hiatus, then move right and up into a groove. After a couple of moves, quit the groove for the arete on the right. A tricky sequence up the arete leads to a traverse right and up to access a sentry box. Take the crack above to an overhang and move right to a belay.
3) 5a, 24m. Climb leftwards on slabs under some overhangs then head up right to the top, © Rockfax

βeta: Climbed the top pitch again as an early finish to the Gimmer girdle. Where the slab runs out Tom blasted straight over the overhangs which gave superb, wildly exposed climbing on great holds and probably warrants E1
