The black overhang at the right-hand entrance to the quarry. One of the most popular problems, and the crag test-piece. Technical and polished. Traverse right from the rail at 1/2 height to finish on the RH arete. Then turn round and reverse it for extra kudos and a serious pump.

5 out of 5 stars there and back again

Took me long enough to get L-R, and even longer to hold on long enough to get back the start. Quality problem, although feet are very polished now.
