UKC

32m. Start as for Red Rose Speedway, but after a couple of metres traverse left along a ledge to the corner. Climb the corner to a ledge below a steeper headwall. Move up left onto another ledge, then climb the pocketed wall above to a ledge and an easier finish up a groove.

Please be aware that at the time of writing (June 2010) there is a very large loose block where the corner and the RRS ledge meet. It does not detract from the climb but care is needed for both climber and belayer alike.
