8m. The awkward and often rather green groove is squirmed to a rounded exit. The route is not popular, partly because of where it is and partly because it's hard! Usually feels like E1. © ROCKFAX

very wet and dirty
northy1983 - Lead O/S - 2011 with seb

It sure was slipery for the hands, and rather damp in the cracks but quality rock for the feet to bridge all the way to the top. The Top out was quite exiting on lead, theres not a lot for your hands up there and I wouldn't trust that heather!
Andrew Abraham - Lead O/S - 27/Sep/10 with Clement Attwood

A slippery crack tricky bridging and a tricky exit. Good value for its length
monsteratt - 2nd O/S - 26/Sep/10 with Andrew Abraham

Well, it looked in reasonable condition but clearly it wasn't. When does get in condition if not mid July?
