From under the arete trend right past the bulge to the centre of the wall and a poor rest. Finish delicately up the face.

No protection on the slab above the overhang. The top move is easier than it looks, with juggy holds out of sight.

mmmmm, I found enough good gear on the slab...

There is good gear on the slab (and a rest at the same point) but this is quite a serious number all the same to gain and leave this point. Seemed mid-band HVS to me.

Excellant route but not a great choice when you can't feel your fingers after 30 seconds.
Chris the Tall - 29/Mar/04

A couple of strong pulls lead to good gear under the overlap, a strenous move to inobvious holds takes you onto the middle of the slab and no more gear until the top! This would be HVS up the road at Stanage. Needs a very cool head.

Found this much easier than either Shadow Wall or Gunpowder Crack

I think this route if good for the head game and as good places to rest at for the move to the top, good gear aswell. Paul Tomo
