The description of the former route :'Redolent with history and adrenaline. Scene of countless epic struggles (and screamers), where the perfect handcrack widens to off-width. The traditional finish is out R, but for a three star combination continue up the layback crack, into the alcove to finish as for Flight of the Chalkbag. Good pro.' A major rockfall in 2009 has significantly changed this route. It is still a similar difficulty, still a classic, and the old description still more or less stands, except the 'handcrack into off width' is now a layback into a hand jam.
