An unequal battle for many. Climb the rib, then the sustained pocketed crack with difficulty (old peg) to an eventual breather on a ledge on the left. Pull up and right, through the bulge, then swing rightwards to the lower-off.
The topo seems out of sync with the description - follow the description to the ledge, and above and right of the ledge it is logical to continue up and right, rather than step back down, make hard moves through the bulge to get to exactlt the same spot - which is indicated by the topo. Maybe I went the wrong way?
The Rockfax mistakenly shows this finishing right to a bolt belay which actually belongs to a new route/project/open project. The original finish is to the ledge on left then right rib of groove. Going the Rockfax way is E56B. Also worth noting that the start is fairly unprotectable.
The route is correct in the Rockfax guide with Adrian's slight re-wording probably worth taking into consideration. The intention of our description was to send people this direction. This is worth hard E4 6a and is the way the route was done originally as described in the 1987 Peak South Limestone guide.
