18m. A fine climb in a dramatic setting. Trend left up up the face to a position on the tip of a flake. Step up and right delicately on a small polished foothold to the final widening crack.

Why are there no comments for this? Surely the best climb for atmosphere at its grade anywhere in the Peak.

Great position, but the actual climbing is a bit patchy, I thought.

Great climb and well worth the trip. The top move took some thought but as with all VD everything was there that you needed including the large jugs at the end.

The highest ratio of jugs per metre of any route I can remember!

You don't get many VDs that are as steep, juggy and in such a superb setting as this, fantastic.

great atmosphere, and not as slippery as the green shade made it look.
