32m | HVS
A superb pitch up the beautifully clean (and vertical) south-facing wall on the left of the gully.
The best HVS added to the Lakes since Scenic Cruise?
Start about 6m below the start of the gully.
(5a) Climb the short chimney in the left wall and move right to the foot of the wall. (This avoids the gully base) Climb a short diagonal groove and cracks until steep moves can be made up to a good flake. Follow the thin crack above to a flake on the left, then pull out left onto the arete and move up to a sloping ledge belay about 6m below the final crack of Esk Edge (Erroneously named Esk Ridge in the last guide). Follow this to the top, or climb the second pitch.
First ascent: (03/09/2010) Al Phizacklea, Joe Holden
