One of the Lake District's highest and most exposed VSs. Start from a belay at a wide crack in the middle of the face.
1) 4c, 25m. Start 3m left of the wide crack and climb confidently up the wall past a good hold until a move right gains the base of a pinnacle. Climb up past the pinnacle until a step right reaches another crack system that leads to a belay in a wide slot. Large cams are needed for the belay. Alternatively, take a hanging stance a little lower on a spike and other gear.
2) 4c, 34m. Step right to a crack and follow it to the base of the upper groove. Finish up the groove. If the groove is wet, take the crack on the left to the arete and finish up it in a very exposed position. Both finishes are superb. © Rockfax
