26m. An excellent expedition, long neglected, though now a popular trip. Start at the base of Zig-zag Flake-crack and climb the leftwards-leaning crack to a good ledge. Continue up the corner-crack right of the holly to a higher ledge then make tricky moves to gain the flakes above. Climb these to a horizontal break just below the cliff top and finish direct.

A magnificent route! Look out for an old railway nut (or similar) jammed in a crack halfway up. Belay at the top is verging on non existant.

Fantastic route, deserves everyone of its stars.

Isn't there a "plate" to belay on at the top? Can't remember if it points the right way for this route though.

Good route. There is a "plate" at the top although part of it has broke off.
