Can be crowded on weekends as this is home to a number of great moderate cracks. Rock quality as always is great gritstone. There can be a lot of midges in the summer if there is no breeze. Some of the descriptions pulled from they have a super comprehensive database worth checking out if you're w.out a guidebook.

Getting There 

It is just to the right of Lovers leap, between there and Cubic Block. Fairly short approach maybe 5 minutes. All routes can be walked off of to the right hand side of the buttress.

The two cracks on the right side of the buttress offer well protected climbing to a choice of finishes. Left is easiest for most. One of the finishes has a secret hold so keep an eye out for that, makes an awkward finish quite a bit easier....[more]   Browse More Classics in International
