A direct on Insectitude and relatively popular. Well protected.

1) 4c, 9m. Climb the wide crack to a small overhang. Make a long reach to gain good holds and jams. Pull up to the large belay ledge at the fault-line just above.
2) 4a, 20m. Climb the chimney and corner crack above, moving left just below the top to avoid loose ground.
FA. D.Oldroyd, D.Burrin, D.Eastwood 1963. Reclimbed by Kevin Turner and Gordon Jenkin after rockfall in 1984

Why has nobody commented or voted on this route - it's a hidden gem.

Hard and committing move to complete the first pitch. Place your gear, reach, trust the finger jams, get you feet high and just go for it! Second pitch is great, safe and very amenable climbing for the Ruckle, good introduction to the environment along this cliff
