Description 

This affectionately named route is eye-catching yet humble when viewed from below. What can't be seen is the sharp cracks and excellent moonrock, similar to some summit crags in the High Peaks. An excellent warm-up for the harder high quality climbs surrounding it, but it is surely worth a visit on its own.

Climb up the corner with the wide crack to reach a stance underneath the roof. Then, break the roof on the right to a ledge. Follow up the low angled corner, to a horn beneath a right-rising crack on the right wall. Climb through this crack (crux) to a slab with a stance beneath the fixed anchor on the left.

Location 

Walk right along the cliff base until you locate a rocky clearing at the base of a wide crack in a wavy left facing corner, capped by a roof 50’ up.

Protection 

Standard rack to #3 Camalot. For the wide crack start, no wide pieces are necessary thanks to a hidden thin crack on the right wall of the corner.
