Start from the large flat hold, pull up to a poor pinch then up and left on crimps to the lip. Seldom climbed.


One star? V9? Where did you figure this out? Like you say, very seldom climbed. Never met anyone who's done it! Impropa is V9 and this looks much harder, and just as good.

like neil says never v9, very hard v10 and 3 stars, awesome moves very committing, IMO better than impropa

Best line and problem on the Ladder Face I'd reiterate Dan’s grade assessment of Fnt7c+/V10, definitely three stars.
Greg Chapman - 18/Apr/06

Agreed with Greg and Dan, this is 7c+ and the best problem on the ladder face and therefore in the Lakes :-) Better moves and more sustained than Impropa, 3 stars. Should be clean after this afternoon weather permitting.
Neil Kershaw - 18/Apr/06

Cleaned all the holds on this today, including the jug on the lip. Get to it beasts!

This is definatley one of the best lines on the stone, if not the best, superb sustained climbing with a commiting finish, v10 Awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!
