Rockfax Description
A classic Stanage E4 giving a bold outing. From the bottom right-hand corner of the face, climb a tiny groove to a poor rest. Swing left and pull up with difficulty (a small cam in the base of the flake is hard to place) then make the crucial layback/stretch to reach the deep horizontal break. Move right and use a good pocket to gain the easier final wall. © Rockfax

FA. John Allen 1973.

βeta: I seem to remember getting a couple of good small rocks, rather than a small friend, in the bottom of the flake when I did it, although it's a fair few years ago now!
