Great sustained climbing. Start in a shallow corner to a steep roof/dihedral followed by a rest. Pull back onto the face and continue up long sustained moves.

Probably the best route at the grade on The Peaks/Elden. Highly recommended!

The route was originally cleaned and bolted by JJ Schlick. Big thanks to him for the original vision and hard work!


Between the Assassin and Holy Roller.
