A climb on excellent clean rock. A scary and poorly protected lead. Ross's first new route after returning from a 20 year stay in the US.Starts at the foot of the West Buttress. Gain a finger crack in a corner,up this to a small ledge (pro piton).Swing with difficulty around the rib to the right onto an open scoop.Climb the wall directly above to a slab. Climb up into a small groove then to a horizontal crack. From here climb directly to the top.


Glaciated Slabs ,Combe Ghyll, Borrowdale Valley


Two or three small cams and stoppers.
