Description 

The obvious feature of this wall is the hugh dihedral of Cenotaph Corner, perfectly framed by its left and right wall - along with the corner itself these walls have some excellent and very steep face climbs (Memory Lane, Left Wall, Resurrection - Lord of the Flies, Right Wall, Cemetary Gates). On the wings there are some slightly more moderate routes, Flying Buttress on the right, and Spiral Stair and Dives/Better Things on the left.

Descend to the right of the crag.

Getting There 

Park at the Cromlech Boulders and hike up the steep loose trail to the base.

Britain's most famous climb? It used to be.This climb had it's name long before it was climbed, it was attempted by some pretty gnarly climbers from Menlove Edwards (who successfully top-roped it in the 1930's) to Peter Harding before its successful ascent by a young lad named Joe Brown.
