Climb into a recess with a block. Exit rightwards to a short wide crack zigging up the wall and a rounded finish left of the arete.
FA. Eric Byne early 1930s


It's very rounded at the top. The moves aren't that hard though.

just done this today.
the official stanage guidebook has this climb at vs 4c.
first pull into the crack is 4c,but well geared from lage cams.
the very last move is a bit scarey unless you are good at bald rounded finishes.

Superb route. Good cams in the break and then commit to the jam. Not ashamed to say that this one got a "woop" of exhilaration out of me after the crux. Top is typical gritstone slopers!

Fantastic route, the move up to the vertical crack is well protected and not as hard as it first looks but made me think.
