47m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
One of Yorkshire's classic E3s. Excellent moves and wild positions provide the fun. Much of the fixed gear is old but there is plenty of it and it can be backed-up. 1) 5c, 25m. Start up the corner which can often be damp and slippery and at its top move right onto the wall. Follow the line of old pegs and threads to a small stance. 2) 6a, 15m. Move left and up to the roof. Pull round with difficulty, either direct, or slightly right, to easier ground above. Well protected. Abseil off. © Rockfax

βeta: Did this yesterday with a fair amount of seepage and yes, what a class route this is - there is plenty of natural gear to back up the pegs.
