An overlooked gem. Not as reachy as the name implies!Start up Leviathan to the ledge beneath the groove/arete. Pull out right and follow the arete to the top. Abseil off.

Is this an error and being confused with 'Extendable Arms', which goes at E1 5c, 5b and includes a second pitch above. I'm a local climber to the Dewerstone and don't recognise the given description here as being different to Extendable Arms.

This is Extendable Arms (O’Sullivan’s original route name) and the first pitch given here is E1 5b. The description for the second – 5c – pitch is:
Climb up, and rightwards, until above Central Groove’s corner. Take the hanging wall direct, on large holds, to a crack. Climb the crack to the top. You might wish you had extendible arms on this…
