Rockfax Description
The wide corner is a titanic struggle for most, wedging-a-way up is the only option, though macho-men with strong arms and little imagination can layback - though they may well end up regretting it as the top approaches. Said by some to make Freddie's Finale look like a soft touch and another ancient HVS!
Green Streak, HVS 5a - For those who haven't had enough make a hand-traverse right to reach the hanging crack - adds half a star. © Rockfax

βeta: the green streak finish is excellent...very well worth doing and possibly adds another 1/2 a star to the route!

βeta: Certainly harder than The Trident or Freddie's Finale, a pumpy E1. Best laybacked - ignore any attempts to sandbag you into wedging your body into it!
