This is the five-star classic of the crag and one of the best routes in the Peak. Amazingly, it was first climbed in 1956 before nuts and cams were used. Start as for Surform and move right when that route goes left, to reach a small niche. As you place the obvious Friend, think of the first ascensionist who had to place a thread in the break. Make the moves to the flakes above (crux), and follow these to the overhung depression below the top. Rest for a bit, then head right to the break in the skyline.
