An airy route with a totally photogenic second pitch.

1) 30ft 5.4. Climb the beginning of the crack to a ledge and belay on the left.

2) 80ft 5.6. Traverse a well marked path leftwards to the arete, then up the arete in a great position.

3) 65ft 5.4. A grrove on the right, then a corner to a traverse on the left wall, this to a thin crack and the top.


About in the middle of the crag below a steep crack (Ribstone Crack).


Standard rack of nuts.

Easy climbing in some amazing situations with lots of exposure, highly recommended. The gear is good but it's a little spaced and the move on to the arete can feel committing for the new 5.6 leader, nothing to worry about, however, the holds are huge. Aug 1, 2012
