Little Ernie Direct Start >>
One of the original routes which takes a superb line up the open groove. Follow Myra Hindley to the rest then bridge up above until you can move right to a ledge. Climb up and over the roof above to a tree belay on the top. The direct start has recently been added at E8 6c (no bolts). © ROCKFAX

Found this hard. Base of the groove standing up and negative holds at start of niche. Also top roped to the top (with rests) and then lowered down to break then up again (with rests!) Might try again in future?
