Top ten in the list of the Lake District's most famous climbs, this route culminates in a magnificently-positioned traverse rightwards across the headwall of the Northwest Face.
1) 10m. Make an easy traverse leftwards to a stance and belay just below the long band of overhangs.
2) 4c, 11m. Move up to the overhang. Traverse left below it to where it ends at a left-facing corner. Climb the corner to a stance shared with Gimmer String - p.109.
3) 5a, 30m. Climb the steep corner then step out right onto the edge of the exposed face. Move up a short way to an old peg, then pull up to a horizontal weakness and make a steep traverse right to below a corner. Gain the corner and finish up it. © Rockfax
