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.

A slanting green groove leads to the pleasant upper arete.

The Edale Trip
Lower meanderings lead to bulges then a ledge. The upper slab is the meat of the route, and is both bold and precarious.

A harrowing lead up the left arete. Gain it from the right and press on boldly! A dubious small cam is the only life-line.

Climb the sustained centre of the wall to the left of the crack. Protection is adequate (small cams and wires) though fiddly.

Overhanging Crack
The wide crack splitting the wall is approached from the left up a thinner fissure. Awkward and thuggy climbing throughout.

Corner Crack
The leaning groove is thrutchy and feels bold despite the thread.

The centre of the block is short and intense.

Seesaw
Climb the left arete of the slab, starting from the left. The flake in the break that seesawed snapped years ago.

Climb the scooped centre of the slab and the crucial overlap from a start on the left or on the right.
