14m. The central crack leads awkwardly to the capping overhang which provides the main meat of the route. An awkward accursed struggle for most, prepare to be mauled! 'Technically by far the most difficult route here', 1973 guide.

an absolute struggle. Better graded with a skin loss / energy expenditure index.

Top class safe, strenuous struggle. About a grade harder than Roof Route at Rivelin so E1 is about right. Joe Brown was nails!

Oh, what a struggle! but a completely fulfilling one at that.

Not actually that bad. Difficulties are very short lived. If you found this ok, then try your hand at Masochism! And they say it's only HVS!
