One of the best 7b's in the Dales. Sustained climbing up the groove leads to steeper rock. Power up the headwall to the lower-off.

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

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

7b+ in my book.

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.
