A high-moorland classic that features crack-climbing in all of its guises. It is possible to run the upper pitches together. Start on the right side of the flake that sits at the base of the gully.
1) 9m. Climb the crack and then the groove above (it is also possible to climb the left face of the groove) to a good ledge.
2) 9m. Chimney up the steep crack and exit onto a large ledge and belay.
3) 9m. The easy chimney above to finish. Belay on blocks.

Just do it in two pitches. The second pitch hardly worth roping up for. The chimmney requires a bit of old school climbing. Hard if not used to this style of climb.

Great old fashioned climbing that requires a bit of grunt. The 'second' pitch has excellent large Hex protection at its start so is well worth placing. Perfectly feasable to do in one pitch.

Why on Earth would anyone do this in three pitches? Anything more than a single pitch would be a complete waste of time. Great climb though.
