16m. An excellent route worth having a shot at. Perhaps the best climbing at Humphrey Head. Move up to beneath the double bolts right of the tufa. Go up and right and continue up the thin crack in the headwall. Move left to a lower-off. A few medium wires are needed on the upper section.
FA. Al Phizacklea, Rob Knight 1984. Luke Steer climbed the direct start in 1989. Al Phizacklea takes time out from new routing in the central lakes and unearths the best bit of climbing at the crag.

Seems a bit of a sandbag; crap gear to the twin bolts; very E5ish
