One of the most celebrated and sought after VSs in the country. Start just beyond the rock step of Rake's Progress at a small slab below the main slab.
1) 4b, 12m. Climb the slab and short crack/chimney to the base of the main slab.
2) 4c, 30m. Head left to the edge of the slab and follow it to small ledges at mid-height. Climb a thin crack-line above to a good belay ledge at the top of the slab.
3) 35m. The rib and corners above lead to the top. © Rockfax
