A fine route up the long flake/corner towards the right-hand side of the wall. Big cams help along the way or just attack the bold layback with gusto.

A good fun route. One of the easiest ways to get to the top of the tor. I found birds nesting at about 20m.

If the whole route was as good as the middle section it would be a 3 star megaclassic, but even with the shocking start and the grotty final moves i loved it. Steep, well protected and while not quite the same as being on the main face, a great way to sample the views and buzz of the best crag in the peak.

If you start up the rib left of the crack at the start then it's very pleasant and isn't "shocking" at all. The rest of the route is sustained laybacking, not polished and very good value at VS. Big cams help
