3 pitches. The route involves climbing up a groove and crack system to a large roof at approximately 15m height. Then traverses right under the roof and up a greasy bottomless groove/chimney to Wingfield's ledge. From here a hand traverse leads around the back of the shaft to Birkbeck's ledge. The last three pitches involves climbing a gradually steepening crack system towards the surface. The last pitch is considered the hardest and most awkward due to the greasy nature of the rock.
