BETA PHOTO: The rope is the route.

Description 

The crux is the first 15 feet. Decent holds and tricky feet will get you up to a break at around 17 or so feet up. From there, it is glorious, 5.4 bucketfest going up an fairly exposed position for the Fells. Going right to the arete at 15 feet will take you off route.

Location 

From the top from B-face, go about 25 feet to the north. It's the first face that is hidden by a pine tree below after some broken rocks that separates B-face from C-face. Set up an anchor, and rap in.

Protection 

You need gear on top to set up a top rope. There is a crack that is set back more than 11 or 12 feet away from the edge on top of the cliff. You need long slings/runners/cords. I had a 30 foot cord, it did not reach, and I needed another 4 foot sling to set up the toprope.

This can be lead though pro is thin for the first 1/2.
