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. Joe used a couple of pitons, and the previous generations just weren't into that.
1) 120ft 5.10+. It's one pitch long and has a stiff move at about 20ft, then easier until arriving at the niche, some delicate stemming leads to a difficult move back into the finishing corner crack.
