72m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Well-named, the line encompasses some of the best moves and rock on the Tor. While pitch 1 has a sense of urgency about it, pitch 2 probably has the hardest move.
1) 6a, 24m. From the left-hand side of The Pillar move up (peg and bolt above) and traverse left to a semi-rest below flakes. A confident approach will see you up these and onward to a flake. Move across left to the Bastille stance.
2) 6a, 18m. Step down and left to join the slippy crux of Flaky Wall. Continue up the cracks of Supersonic then move left, past a rest, up a ramp to the arete (hidden peg). A hard move gains Original Route. Climb up this to the belay. Abseil or...
3) 5c, 30m. For the completionist, traverse the upper break leftwards across Darius to join Robert Brown to finish. © Rockfax

βeta: E4, value for it like. But still E4 - definitely the best of the traverse lines (well I haven't done the girdle yet)

βeta: The starting moves are slightly exciting, a taste of things to come. The abseil chains from the Original Route ledge are removed from time to time!
