A fine pitch - devious, technical, sustained and superb. Climb the rib at the left-hand edge of the face then hand-traverse out right to gain a hanging ramp. Climb up and right via a shallow groove to eventually gain Adjudicator Wall. Climb the groove to its end then pull onto the wall above before swinging right to gain easy ground and some respite.

Again a really good route, loved it, but not sure it's worth 3*s. Really good gear and a very brief crux

Superb, well worth 3 stars. One of the best routes of its grade on peak limestone.

some deeply unusual moves, and good rock. Not quite as good as AW though. Has anyone done the direct finish where W of S moves right?
