Another one from my Peak book. Taken at about 6.00 pm on a fine evening in early October.

That looks nice!

It is. Highly recommended. One of the best VSs on Peak 'southern limestone' - if it has any shortcomings it is that this main crux pitch is almost too shortlived, but it's superbly positioned with lovely pockety climbing.

I think this is certainly one of the best VS leads in the country, but I agree... quite a short crux pitch.
That big rock over on to the face - you certainly feel like you're 'entering the arena'.
Great pic - very photogenic route! Feel free to volunteer to take one of me on it.
