135m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Once the longest fully bolted sport route in the UK, but now surpassed by its neighbours to the right. It is still a great adventure from the very bottom to the top of the Quarryman Wall.
1) 6b, 30m. Climb the slab in the corner with some bridging. From the ninth bolt, carefully traverse right avoiding the scree ledge to a bolt belay.
2) 7a, 30m. The crack and flake-line are easy to start, but have a hard move over a bulge near the top to a ledge. Bolt belay.
3) 6b, 30m. Climb the slab/wall to a ledge at the foot of a short groove and possible belay ledge (two bolts). Continue up the arete past three bolts to the 'Matilda' ledge. Bolt belay.
4) 7b+, 25m. A beginners' Quarryman groove leads to a bolt belay below Wonderful World...
5) 7b, 20m. Belay a few feet further right. Take the flake and crack system up the attractive bulging wall. The thin crack doesn't take fingers very well. The crux is either a high step up right or left - take your pick. © Rockfax
