The best route here but getting polished. Gain the wavey flake via a hard move, then climb this with powerful moves past the 3rd bolt to a jug. Swing left to better holds and up to the belay.

One of, if not the best 7a in the peak!

Who'd have thought? A genuine 3 star route at Harpur Hill.

gorgeous climbing on good holds. once past the initial crux, jugs keep coming

Stunning, holds where you need them and a southern limestone route in the north!

only 6c+ if your tall...7a+ if you do stealth.

6c+ for average height people.

Classic. A great rock feature (by any standards let alone Harpur Hill) and a seductively obvious sequence make this hard to resist. Not desperate, but potent climbing most of the way. Pretty steady for F7a?

Great rock and moves. Felt like low-end 7a to me.
