A fine, historic route from the 80s, which has some stopper moves and regularly repels redpoint attempts. Start in the cave and swing out to gain the wall. Reaching the hanging groove up and left is taxing, climbing it is only marginally easier. Finish by stretching left to the big flake and lower-off, or try the next route.
FA. Martin Atkinson 1988. The hardest route in the country at the time and completed the day before Martin moved to Switzerland.
