Rockfax Description
A classic moorland jug-fest. Climb the awkward groove then step out left and tackle the superb flaky wall to ledges and a possible stance. From the ledge, step out right to a glorious finish up the widening crack. . © Rockfax

FA. Arthur Birtwhistle 1936.

βeta: A pretty tough HS this I thought, steeper than it looks and a couple of burly moves with tricky feet - could easily get VS elsewhere I think.

βeta: This is bog standard HS with good rests between excellent moves and with decent nut protection. It must be the best HS in the entire Peak!
