A classic Yorkshire HVS on superb rock. Climb via a small right-facing corner to a ledge and move up and left onto the slab above (thread). Traverse right to a huge jug and make steeper moves up and slightly right to good holds and an easier finish.

easiest of a trio of absolute must do HVS routes on the crag. Terrific setting and a pleasantly underused crag.

given grade may suggest gear is poor, when in fact its quite good.

Gear good on first half, but merely adequate on the traverse, which feels a bit 'out there' till you get to the 'thank god'hold.
