20m. A bizarre route, said to be the longest roof pitch on grit and not one for a busy day. From the start of Kirkus's Corner make an awkward move out left then traverse the lip of the roof all the way to a finish up the left arete.

Got to the lie down rest on FBD - pumpy fun, then unsure what to do after that. You can traverse in an upright position along the lip after this with good gear and a final move to FB. Or... you could hand traverse the horrific sloping ledge with zero gear.

Method 1 is E2 5c, method 2 is E4 ?
