UKC

25m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 5b, 10m. Quickly gain the thin hanging crack with difficulty and follow it to ledges and a belay.
2) 4c, 15m. The wall on the left is climbed via a rounded mantelshelf. The pitch can be improved by hand-traversing the rounded pod that runs out towards the arete just below the top. © Rockfax

βeta: The mini Rays Roof referred to above is mentioned in the previous Staffs guide. Joe Brown was the first ascensionist and he rated it as His hardest ever offwidth and therefore it probably deserves far more attention historically.
