A beautiful roof route that's more intimidating than technically hard. One of Stanage's finest climbs.

5 out of 5 stars Excellent, fun, pumpy

Apparently the route has been upgraded to E1 5a, but I'm not complaining. It's really a hard boulder problem with an easy slab on both sides. Wonderful exposure for a single pitch route. Good gear, intimidating, rewarding.
