A major route tackling the roof at its widest point which gives good moves separated by decent rests and the odd bit of dodgy rock. The best positioned sport route in the Peak! It is usually done in one huge (40m) pitch but then lowered-off in stages.
FA. Kristian Clemmow 2004. Almost freed in 1987 by Andy Pollitt (1pt) although the new version takes a different line through the main roof.

Totally free with a slightly different line at 8a ***, Kristian Clemmow last year.
