68m, 3 pitches. A variation on Naztron (recorded in the FRCC Langdale guide). The original route started up the first pitch of Hitcher, before tackling the right-facing, square cut corner.

1. 28m. Start as of P1 of White Ghyll Wall, ascending the rib before traversing right under the overhang. Belay 3-4m further right of the original belay for White Ghyll Wall.

2. 5a, 24m. Treading right slightly, climb the obvious right-facing, square cut corner, passing an initial tricky section low down. Continue up the corner until under the roof of the overhang. Marginal protection in the roof allows you to traverse left and up to thread belay beside a sapling, on a grassy ledge.

3. 16m. Treading slightly left continue upwards more or less following the final pitch of The Veil.
