10 mins

A secluded wall with a couple of hard face routes, as well as a variety of easier stuff, including some arduous crack climbs and delicate slabs. The surrounding buttresses are typical out-of-the-way Stanage - worthwhile climbs that would be popular on any other cliff; here the area is rarely busy. Guidebook page 143.

The Hathersage Trip
10m. Climb the sustained centre of the wall to the left of the crack. Protection is adequate though a bit of a fiddle.
