8m. Start up Bede Crack but traverse right along the lip of the roof to a pocket, making bold and fingery moves to finish. A Direct Start using some poor pockets is 6b.

A smaller and easier version of Peak Technique at Back Bowden, some scary friction moves in the middle of the slab. Try not to emulate Steve Blake who took what he described as a backwards ski jump off the slab and onto the steep heather slope!
