24m. A fine climb up the corner that falls from the left edge of the long roof capping the wall. Follow the corner direct (good gear) passing the jutting nose with difficulty. From a small ledge, move out onto the airy arete for a fine finish.

Good route and gear although can't see why this gets two stars and Trepidation gets none in Yorkshire Grit guide. The same corner's followed for both routes at the start and seeing the air open up under your feet as you step out onto the left wall for Trepidation feels great. I think it's the better route. Bang on at VS 4c for both.

Great route. Truely enjoyable.

Good route, but the finish whilst a little airy is a bit of a distraction and not really logical.
