Description:© (kieranl)

This is not as good as used to be thought but still a good, old-fashioned climb with good rock and protection. The final pitch is not very good with the direct finish being a vastly better, but harder option. Doing the first pitch of 'The Sloth' would also improve the climb at no change in grade.

Start: Chimney 15m left of 'The Last Act'. Initialled "DG".

  1. 25m (-) Climb a few metres up the cminey and then traverse left to a ledge. Follow the juggy line above to a big ledge.

  2. 24m (-) Go right into the shallow chimney and follow it to below the overhang.

  3. 24m (15) Around bulge and up groove to below roof. Either traverse easily left to short hard corner or move up to roof and hand-traverse left (this option discovered by Chris Baxter).

  4. 28m (-) Walk left and up line on right side of pinnacle and continue up line.
