80m, 2 pitches. E1 5b, 5b Another top quality line which now makes the alternative finish to Lest we Forget part of an independent route. Start 5m left of the start of Lest we Forget.1. 40m Follow the line of stepped blocks up and slightly right easily for 12m to the base of a steep wall. Clamber directly up the wall to reach a clean ledge 5m below a grass ledge. Step right and rise smoothly up a short crack to reach the grass ledge. Step right again and join Lest we Forget for the final crack to the belay.
2.40m Start up Lest we Forget for 5m, and then step left and traverse left across a slab to a line of cracks leading upwards. Follow these dutifully up, and then step left to a ledge below an overhang. Up, up, up through this and then follow a rising fissure right to the foot of the final crack, and so to the top.
Pitch 2 previously climbed by Dawson and Willie Brown Kerr as an alternative finish to Lest we Forget.

D. Stelfox and D Somers 03/May/1988.
