10m.

Rockfax Description
One of the best of Dartmoor's fun micro-classics. Start under the ledge below the right-slanting flake. Move onto the ledge and make a tough swing out right before continuing along the flake to a tricky move up a short crack to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Once voted the best VS in the country (perhaps a somewhat bold statement but a very good short route none the less)! Follow the huge jug filled flake on the eastern face of the Perched Block. Those with confidence will lock their arms out and find this easy, but otherwise intimidating and pumpy!

Geoff Sutton 16/Aug/1954.

βeta: Protected with two bombers DMM Dragons: red in the vertical crack before the traverse (needs hella extending) and a green in the flake before the final (wet!) moves.

βeta: One bit of gear. Would have been enough had I not tried to stand on the flake. Bad idea. Could have had a nasty ending.
