One of the more popular routes in the quarry, giving some testing slab moves. Overall however, it is low in the grade. Climb the thin crack direct to the wider crack on Janabaloo. Climb this crack to a ledge and tree. Finish as for Janabaloo or abseil off.

I've been climbing on Derbyshire grit for a good few years now, so to get my first HVS lead on limestone was a bit of a surprise. Great route, sufficient gear, and a huge buzz.
