14m. An arduous outing round the left-hand side of the Space roofs. Climb into and up the hanging corner and a bridged rest. Pull rightwards over the final roof with difficulty - good wires, awkward to place - then sprint up the juggy final wall.

Very good route. The gear is good but hard to place on lead (in the thin crack above the roof). a couple of hard moves with gear right by you,then good holds to the top. Not bold by northumberland standards. E4 6b, about the same as Lost Cause.
