Rockfax Description
A right-to-left crossing of the wall and upper overhang gives a truly amazing pitch. Gain the belay above Trubble either by aiding Trubble, or better, by climbing Last Dog and traversing right. Climb up leftwards to a small ledge. Go left into Hangman and then into Pierrepoint which is followed to its lower-off. Climb to the roof and move left to a spike and head off up the exposed groove to a lower-off on the right. A 60m rope will not get you down to the ground - use the Pierrepoint middle lower-off to split it. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The original link up that traverses the wall from right to left to finish up the hanging groove/roof left of the Pierrepoint roof. The faf at the start and the poor state of the bolting on Gallows Humour (Aug 2022) puts most people off from trying it now.

FA. Martin Berzins 1995.
