3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An excellent route with plenty of good climbing, large stances and fine views. Start at a flake below an overhang.
1) 18m. From the flake, move up left. Pass the overhang then make moves left to below a tiny left-facing corner. Follow this to a large ledge and flake.
2) 14m. Climb the wall next to the flake via fingery moves to another ledge and big flake belay on the right.
3) 13m. Move right to a corner and climb it to a ledge.
4) 16m. Make tricky moves up a small corner on the left. Continue up, taking the edge of the wall rightwards to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Guidebook description 'at the top end of the grade' is unchanged from the previous edition when it was graded Diff. So it should now really say 'at the bottom end of the grade'!

βeta: Large block loosening towards top of P2 in spot where it's tempting to place gear - don't!

βeta: New FRCC Duddon & Wrynose upgrade to Severe is just stupid. This is friendly VDiff, perfect for new leaders.
