90m. Seigfried Herford invented the genre here, the route that spawned a thousand imitations from Scafell to El Cap. Left to right is usual from the start of the cliff to Deep Chimney and an hour was thought a good time in the 1920s. Reaching and descending Keep Corner is generally regarded as the crux, especially for the second man. The precise line and the stances are left for the adventurer to rediscover.
FA. Siegfried Herford c.1910
