Rockfax Description
Climb the slab left of the shallow groove then step left and make a fierce, fingery mantelshelf to better holds and an uphill finger-traverse to ledges. One more scary move remains. The direct start is a very technical f7A+ problem. © Rockfax

βeta: Please Please Please STOP TOP ROPING this route to death. Its an uber classic that is a million times better done ground up. The crux is dead safe with a couple of pads and a spotter, so just leave it till you're good enough. If you get through the crux, you aint going to fall from the ramp line. Gritstone is not eternal, its wearing out, getting polished, which makes it much harder for anyone wanting to have that pure gritstone ground up experience. Its clear from the comments below that its way too hard for the majority of Top Ropers who just fancy having a go, so just leave it and come back in a few years when you're better\stronger\bolder.

βeta: Crux move low down is tricky. But how to finish? Direct or traverse left into the adjacent route? Needs much more practice before I'll go for it. Need to do it before the weather warms up.

βeta: Easy E4, one trickyish move at 15ft, and then a path to the top. Pex 5b, maybe 5c tops ;)

βeta: How do most people finish this route? Do you traverse into LJ's at the top or do you do the direct finish as described in the old Froggatt guide?
