One of the best lines in the Peak up the monumental diagonal groove. The climbing is hard and sustained with plenty of knee work and egyptians necessary (knee-pads). There is a bit of a shake at half-height and the finish requires a long reach. It often spits off attempts from high up which can be frustrating. Loss of footholds has made it a bit harder.

I did (possibly) the 2nd ascent of this (on aid!). Jim Moran walked past just as Binky was setting off to strip it - Jim gazed up the line and said just one word - "craftsmen".
