The pegs have gone making this much more serious than it used to be - it has not been re-led. Climb the lower wall past the bulge to a ledge. Move right then climb up into a crack to reach a short groove. Climb this and the right-facing corner above to a loose finish.
FFA. Ian Parsons, Howard Lancashire 1989. The upper section was climbed as Yankee Dollar by Jim Moran in 1980. FA. Bruce Andrews, Brian Moore 1970. This followed the original aided line of Behemoth to start.


Cleaned route June 09. Some holds changed with removal of very loose rock. Most of pegs either gone or in a terrible state. Added two new pegs to lower half and cleaned out some runner placements. Still looks a great route, but needs re-ascending, current grade will certainly be defunct now. Probably gnarly E6/7 with gear as it is. Maybe a more pleasant hard E5 with addition of one bolt where half height peg was(no available placements for new peg).
