16m. A real gem of the crag featuring a technical lower wall and a go-for-it finish. Start at the twin trees. Move up the small corner and pull right to a tufa - bolts above. Traverse left to a peg and crank up to easier-angled rock. Now head straight for the lower-off. A rack of wires is ample.
FA. Pat McVey, Mark Danson 1978. A great find that ensured the later popularity of the crag.

A real gem. For those who refuse to beleive that good limestone exists in the Lakes try this one. One of my old favourites.

Most people go up right to clip the bolts on "shot by both sides" but the route climbs directly to the peg which can be hard to see.

I think it was this route i held Mark's ropes on. If it was he fell from the final ledge with a lots of big blocks for company! They demolished my gear (at foot of crag) and he somehow survived .... so did i but not my shoes!!
