One of the best 8a's in the Peak with a powerful start, a tricky technical crux and a beautiful upper wall. The crux is height-dependant - there is no one-size-fits-all solution here though and knee pads are pretty much essential. There is a bolted direct version which is still a project.
Powerpants, 8a - After the crux of PP, move right into DA.

Lots of possible sequences on the crux that make the climbing not so hard

The crux is actually pretty basic unless you get into lots of weakling knee bar shenanigans. Tom (6'2)
