Although a little polished, this Chee Tor classic offers great climbing at the grade with two distinct and contrasting crux sections. Climb the groove to a rest and thread. Delicate moves right allow access to the upper groove which is left with a hard pull past good gear to excellent finishing holds.

The current route description and diagram (in the crap BMC guide) could be a bit more precise - though its normally plastered in chalk! Eg climb the groove moving leftwards, then begin traversing right past the first thread to good holds. Climb up to and past the next thread to difficult finishing moves over the bulge.

Superb climbing with the crux where they all should be - right at the top! You won't find many better E1's in the peak.

Harder but less fun (more uncomfortable) than Sergyenna. In fact fairly awkward. Nice rock in the upper part.

Wonderfully subtle, though a bit dusty when we did it.

good jug pulling fun with one tricky move. i found the crux to be lower down rather than th top, maybe i missed something. take a lot of quickdraws

I thought the same, the hardest move is in the first half, the top is just a little more prescribed than the rest. Fantastic rock after the traverse.
