Rockfax Description
Launch out left and hand traverse out to the arete and a rest. Climb the steep slab (as for the long reach method of Escape/Boot Hill) to the roof then exit rightwards as for Fern Hill. The short will find the start hard and the slab impossible. © Rockfax

FA. Vin Ridgeway, who cracked his nut on the final roof. 1951.

βeta: Awesome line across the wall which obviously doesn't see enough traffic! Great pumpy traverse which requires good footwork to prevent you getting too pumped, with great moves passing the top of 'The Groove'.......Incedently anyone done this on a Top-rope yet? was chalked up and looks like a dyno has been employed to reach the break?
