Rockfax Description
Set in the arete is this attractive groove. Enter this using an unhelpful set of scoured holds; frequently frustrating, though with good gear. Continue up the groove to a good ledge below an overhanging block. Overcome this at its left-hand corner by a short struggle or, if you have had enough, escape off to the left. © Rockfax

βeta: There's a foothold for the left foot at the start reputed to be the slippiest bit of rock on Stanage - best avoided.

βeta: not much gear !!! My impression was it's a crack in a corner, with lots of other crack surrounding it. You can lace it with gear!!!

βeta: A combination of polish and numb hands resulted in two falls on the first section - a few minutes and warmer hands later - nailed it third time. Lovely route, not much gear lower down though.

βeta: spit on your hand rub the soles of your rock boots clean until they squeak. As long as you know how to jam the rest is easy.
