A brilliant and unusual route which is very un-Peak-like - not a single crimp in sight! It requires a good dry spell to come into condition although it does get ascents with the odd damp hold. Climb the sidewall, then link the pockets across the roof to reach a jug some way above the big fat chain on the lip. Reverse to the chain since the lower-off above is rotten. © Rockfax

Possibly only 7c+, especially if you miss the last bit by finishing at the chain.
