28m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
28m. A great outing through some impressive territory.
1) 4a, 12m. Climb the flake-crack up the right-hand side of the huge flake of The Pedestal to a sitting stance (low belays) on its top. Starting up the left-hand side of the flake ups the overall grade to S 4a.
2) 3c, 16m. Reverse off the end of the ledge then traverse left and up to the left-hand corner of the great roof. To stop the rope jamming, try fixing a runner out left to direct it away from the crack, then pull over the bulge and finish up the deep groove. © Rockfax

βeta: THe LH side of the Pedestal is nicer climbing but worth severe. Watch the rope drag on the top pitch. This route got me back into proper climbing after a long post-teenage lay-off, seconding the top pitch in a deluge - wonderful!. Many thanks, Mr Stone

βeta: Led this on the left hand side (S 4a) and thought it was fantastic! Nice and dry on the first pitch, bomber belay. Finish up the crack was a bit green and wet though.

βeta: pleasant enough right route is better though. Go whichever way round the pedestal you please. then traverse out airily under the overhang, don't try and climb up into the groove which i've always found dripping green, climb up the slab just left.

βeta: Didn't discern anything 4a-ish about the entry into the groove, but the flanks of the pedestal may just be worth it. A great adventure for the new climber.

βeta: Classic of the grade, one of the few in the Peak to practice multi-pitch climbing. Do it on a quiet day.
