Rockfax Description
The superb curving-corner is polished but remains a wonderful climb. Bolts have made it a sport route but for the full 3-star experience you must finish up the final groove then step right and move up to the lower-off. Added Value, 7b. - Finish up Full Value from the first lower-off. © Rockfax

FA. (Pitch 1) Joe Brown 1953. FFA. Ron Fawcett, Al Evans 1975 - graded HVS! FA. (Pitch 2) R.Mosley and others 1957. R.Hields and R.Hirst climbed both pitches in 1957. FFA. See 2000.

βeta: So polished! Felt like I should of brought ice skates rather than rock boots.

βeta: bag of rubbish-its a polished horror show. really didnt enjoy it one bit. perhaps we'd been spoiled by the routes we did at malham the day before, but i really thought this wasnt much fun. do yourself a favour and drive down the road to some grit. or malham.

βeta: Now has a double bolt belay at the top of the groove underneath the roof which means u dont have to traverse right (unless u really want to) Also there is a good left hand variation finish from the lower belay at 7A+ although it is tempting to grab rather than clip the belay.
