A fine climb with a chequered history. Start by the stump and climb up the easy stuff until things blank out, once the sight of a bolted on flake-hold. Crank past this and keep going through the final roof to reach the top. Drop back down and lower off the last bolt.
FA. John Welford 1991. Nigel Slater climbed the route as The Tea Monster in 1990. His dubious bolted-on flake had a short life.

Whatever grade this route is, I think 8A, it is the best of its grade in the Peak

the only thing I didn't find on this route was a desperate crux... it is amazing climbing... big holds, fun moves, just keep going!
