A very impressive route that takes a line over the large overhang at the south end of the crag. Starts about 30' right of Illusion at a white rib below and right of a groove.P1) The rib leads up to an obvious groove, which is followed to a hanging belay near its top.70' 5.9. P2) Climb up left to the roof, then further left to the corner and up to a piton runner on the left. Make a hard long reach move left then go up and back right to a hanging groove above the roof. Finish up the groove on good holds. It is possible to gain the groove above the roof direct ,this is slightly more difficult.75'5.11b


Lower Falcon Crag, about two miles from the town of Keswick. See FRCC guide book to Borrowdale.
