24m. The classic of this part of the crag, with good climbing and a sunny aspect. Thought by some to be the best Severe between Hadrian's Wall and the border. From the lowest point of the buttress, follow the grooves up and right to a high ledge below the overhang. Gain the groove to the left of the overhang either directly, or via a short traverse from the right, and finish up this.

Just brilliant!

Climbed it again yesterday, just as good as the first time. One of the best single pitch routes I've done.

Really nice climb... not hard and well protected but really good rock and nice moves - didn't want it to finish!

My first lead for 20 years and what a great way to get back into the swing of things. Great protection and clean solid rock. Good belay position with a steel spike as an added bonus to anchor my six year old to!!
