This long single-pitch is one of the most popular routes on the crag (therefore a bit polished), upgraded by popular demand. Take plenty of quickdraws. The start is the crux, but the thin slab above provides an interesting finish. Descend by abseil.

Good route-sustained, with interesting moves.
The pitch can be split at a belay just below and left of the final slab, if your arms are tired!

Good climbing but hard for the grade with uninspiring 'chain hanger' old bolts. It wanders a bit so you get significant drag if you do in one pitch with single rope, and this also makes lowering off and stripping a pain - use double if possible. Could do with rebolting, especially the lower-offs.

Great route, not polished, but very sustained for the first 35 metres and felt more like 6b. And whilst the rest may be easier, it's very run out
