18m. A great climb up the long groove that is the main feature of the right-hand side of the cliff. A steep initial section leads to a block (the Pulpit) at the foot of the superb curving crack. This can be laybacked by Philistines (useful thread), the rest of us will revel in the quality of the jamming.

A bit overrated.

Simply superb. Where else could you find a 3-star route of this grade on grit that isn't polished?!

enjoyed it and was ok even when quite green.long walk when your hung over and dropping my belay brack down the crack at the top made this the only route we could do.good job the bouldering below was so good!

Agree with Craig,a classic of the crag, worth the walk, can be done in any conditions. Good winter route.

Re above comment "good winter route", I mean big boots not crampons (it is natural grit after all). There are plenty of good winter routes 15 mins away in Dovestones Quarry (see crag details or guide book)..
