24m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
24m. An excellent mini-expedition. Stances can be taken along the way. Climb Chiseller to its top then move round the arete and climb a groove. Cross the flake to a small ledge and then finish up the crucial crack above. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Deservedly regarded as one of the finest climbs in Yorkshire, even with the hype it is unlikely to disappoint. The route allows mortals to unlock the secrets of The Cow, leading the climber outwards and upwards across the famous old face to joyously celebrate among the ancient carvings of the summit.
