The long crack in the left-hand side of the face is hard work where it splits the roof. A classic struggle, though a sneaky layback/bridging sequence can help get past the hardest section.

Classic Gritstone Struggle - Superb VS route, worth a try.
Craghead - 14/May/02

A great route but no struggle and nearer HS if your bold enough to stay as much as possible on the outside. Adjectivally easier but feels insecure and can be exhausting partly or fully inside.

A bit of a one move wonder - just be bold and stay on the edge of the crack

Defiantly best to stay on the outside but the pro isn't great and looking at a fall on to a bit of a ledge if you mess it up getting back upright so worth VS
