Rockfax Description
A great route with a devious but logical line. Easier (E1 5b?) for the tall. Climb the blunt arete on side-pulls to a small ledge below the steep slab. Make an awkward traverse out right to the arete then reach the horizontal break above with difficulty before traversing back left to the short finishing crack. © Rockfax

FA. Joe Brown 1955.

βeta: How are you supposed to do that initial traverse? I'm pretty sure it wasn't the way that I did it!

βeta: Is the FA date correct as the route is listed in Eric Byne's 1951 'Climbs on Gritstone 2, The Sheffild Area' guide?

βeta: Correct sequence crucial for the first traverse. Took 3 goes to find it :(. Top traverse no pushover. Dunno 'bout "hardest E1 in the peak", but I've certainly done easier E2's!
