Rockfax Description
Great climbing requiring some powerful moves in the steep lower half and some insecure wall moves on the exposed face of the upper pillar. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A tremendous route with a tremendous name from Jim Bird. Originally a trad route with only two poor threads protecting the initial bulge. Bully your way through the bulge near the centre of the arch to some respite on a ledge. Move leftwards off the ledge then up rightwards to gain and climb the front face of the pillar. The lower-off is on the wall behind.

Jim Bird 21/May/1986.

βeta: Stunning route, start is not hard at all just use your feet! Going wrong handed at the start helps. Nice varied climbing fun, lowering off is tricky tho make sure your ropes dont line up ontop of each other or its jams! Didnt find anything loose, well bolted also
