15m. The most popular route on the crag and one of the better '7b's in the Dales. Mega moves up the groove lead to steeper rock. Power up the headwall to the chain.
FA. Chris Sowden et al 1985. Initially climbed with various bits of gear but now fully bolted. A very popular route on superb limestone.


a strong contender for 7b+

A superb climb at 7b.
Lee Proctor - 01/Aug/03

Short but utter quality throughout. Felt pretty damn hard for 7b! Was hot though.

My latest opinion - standard 7b.

7b+ in my book.
Dave Cross - 18/Sep/06

Redpointed this before it was fully bolted and had to put a couple of wires in to augment the in-situ gear. Certainly felt 7b+ to me.

7b, nothing hard enough for 7b+
