The start of Knight's Move (photo by Phil Ashton)

Description 

One of the best routes at the grade in The Peak.

Start beneath the left side of the huge roof. Climb up to the roof and pass it on the left. From the lip of the roof follow the obvious line of flakes up the wall above.

Great climbing, on perfect rock.

Location 

Middle of the buttress

Quite good. Tall for Burbage North with good movement and well protected crux moves.
