14m. The razor-edged iron coruscations (above an ankle-snapping flake) lead left then back right to the top of the slab. Escape up or down Great Slab. The only gear is a Friend 4 located above all difficulties, it is not much use! Perhaps it is worth trying this one in ski boots.

Pretty sweet. Some of the holds are a bit slippery.

Fantastic Slab route, a must for those of us that love very delicate, tenious moves (particularly, though worryingly, way above gear).

Key point - Don't obey the chalk-holds. They're most often wrong from people mistaking the correct line!

Very unusual route for Derbyshire more like Yosemite low angle face.
By the way the first ascent was done by Johnathan Lagoe & Alan Baker but they never got the credit.

Great matchstick edge climbing. Bit painfull if your fingers aren't fresh! Don't bother bringing gear for the hole at the top of the route.
