45m.

Rockfax Description
Another delightful pitch that completes the trio of 'must do' HVSs at this end of the slab. Start by climbing to and up the left-hand shallow groove and once above it, move up to gain the right-trending line just right of the main overlap. Follow the line to a ledge then traverse left using the crack above it to a ledge and finish up a short corner (as for Lakeland Cragsman). © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start 2m right of Lakeland Cragsman.
Climb the thin crack right of Lakeland Cragsman through the left hand of three breaks in the overhang. Thin moves lead up and left until a rightward slanting ramp/groove can be followed to a narrow ledge. Pull into a corner on the right and hand traverse the horizontal crack leftwards to pull out left. Follow easier ground to the top.

R. McHaffie and J. Bosher Sep/1991.
