|70m, 3 pitches. Checkout the topo which corrects the line of pitch 1 in the South Devon and Dartmoor guide. Little sound clean climbing exists after pitch one where it becomes bolder than HVS and may be a candidate for XS 5a.
Pitch 1 - Strike out diagonally leftwards from the start of Goddess of Gloom to the overhanging bulge. Break out right along a rising hand ledge towards the corner. Climb diagonally left to a thread (new 2014) and nut belay under a roof as for Melinda.|
