The route that put the "arm" in Armathwaite.
An excellent line, steep and compelling on good clean rock.
(5c). From the peg at 5 meters (good nut just above), move out to a good pocket on the slight prow. Strenuous climbing leads back left then straight up to the large resting ledge. Rising doubts as to the peg's solidity urge one upwards to this! From the sanctuary of the ledge a bulge is climbed into the top groove and exited on the left though it is often exited on the right as this finish stays cleaner. It may be wise to give the top ledges a brush before an ascent!
