One of Langdale's finest VSs that features two testing crack pitches and an airy top pitch. Start at the base of the long rib.
1) 4b, 17m. Move up easily to a wide crack (large cam for protection) and move up past it to a ledge and belays.
2) 4c, 20m. Take the thin crack and bulge above to a rib that leads to a ledge and block belay.
3) 4b, 30m. Move 6m right along the ledge until at a thin crack. Move up the crack (tricky to start) then left, passing under a block/pinnacle to its left side. Traverse left for 8m on positive holds to a corner and cross it to easier ground. © Rockfax
