A fine square pillar home to one of Harry Scarlett's original bold (pumped in pumps!) offerings from the 1930s and a few more modern routes. The climbs tend to be reachy and fingery, plus as is often the case with Wharncliffe, protection is not especially generous and the landings are worrying.

The tough side-wall is climbed trending left to the break. Move left again and layback the arete.

Scarlett's Wall Arete

Scarlett's Climb
Climb the centre of the wall on flaky holds to a stretchy finish. Harder for the short.
