The hardest of the trio. Start by going left via an undercut pocket, then traverse right before breaking back out left to a boulder problem to gain the niche. Then climb the wall before heading out left to finish on the scarily-thin jug.

The best of the three routes that could just sneak into 7b. Much harder than Appetite and Free n even easier at Malham. Scary at the top if you are tired.

Funny last moves when tired, and you don't know where the good bits are over the top lip. 7b to onsight.

Never 7b, all the holds are too big. I did this way before I could climb 7a+ on many other crags

A cracking route, a bit scary at the top if pumped. Certainly heading towards 7b.

Are the bolts in this still the originals? They're now looking very old and rusty. When clipping a draw onto the 4th bolt a flake of the bolt head sheared off as I knocked it with the draw - scary!
Dave Johnson - 06/Jun/09

Crucial undercut between bolts 4 and 5 has now come off making route harder

Great route, I did this just after Jon had made the FA. Seems harder than I remember! Felt 7b to me.
