Description:

A nice long easy route up the buttress. On Pitch 3, climb up the left most crack (5.4), not up the cracks (5.7 or more) on the face on the right. It's hard to get lost here. Five pitches with a 60m rope. Has been done car to car in 58 minutes I have heard.

5 out of 5 stars Fun place for first time rock climber

I never did rock climbing in my entire life before I climbed this one. You have to have an amazing partner who's experienced and protective. We were on the summit after 6 hours and the feeling of accomplishment was unbelievable.

5 out of 5 stars Fools Rush 5.6

This climb is on the south side or the arrete that forms White Maidens Walkway. Use as an alternate start for the first few pitches to White Maidens. On pitch 3 cross over to White maidens. Continue on White Maidens for pitches 4 & 5. Great views and no people. A bit runout. But good.
