14m. A classic. Start up Brown's Crack, but follow ramps left, then tackle the crucial crack that splits the bulge. Well protected but quite taxing, it may be the best VS on the crag, who knows? Starting up Nemmes Pas Harry makes a good steep HVS 5a.

The final steep crack can be desperate without the 'right' approach!

Easily the most enjoyable VS I have done so far. The views are amazing and the climb is just as good!!!

One of the best VS ive done, easy going lower down then comes the bulge, easily protected but requires a bold approach...dont forget to take in the view across ladybower...joy

yer id probably go for 5a, but well protected and a one move wonder so middling VS id say. lovely route.

A great little route with a nicely positioned crux that's steep but very well protected and with excellent holds. I thought only 4c but definitely 3 stars.

Found this quite easy actually, loads of gear and just layback the top crack, great route though, but no more then 4c.

Great route. The bottom crack is pretty straightforward and the top crack (crux?) was easy once I figured out I could layback it. Not a lot to choose between this one and Gargoyle Flake as the best VS at the crag.

Sweet. Couldn't ask for better protection, good for VS 5a initiation (even if it is 4c/5a).

Good route but I think it's over rated. The walk along the ramp rather spoils it. Good crux move though (4c!) with bomber overhead gear.
