Rated E2 5c. This intimidating roof is an all-time peak district classic, and still a great testpiece despite being ascended over 50 years ago! The route climbs an overhanging crack to a tricky, blank corner before continuing more easily up horizontals and twin cracks to the base of the roof. From here, trend right out the roof on flakes, protecting in the crack off left. The lip pull is the crux, and usually involves a jam in the left hand crack and yes, some thrutching.
