22m. 'Philtrum' - the shallow groove under everyones nose. Follow The Snake up its slab to the stance before the pod, then go direct up the steep corner to embrace the tooth and up & rightwards through the roof, to a triangular footledge, then climb the delicate overhanging groove (old peg) to the sloping shelf and a final mantle for glory! Maybe a Tremadog notoriously hard E5 6b; brilliant f7b climbing and adequate gear.

Had a play on the grigri on sat on just the top half and checked a bit of kit. Went down on a toprope this a.m. and straight onto it. Got pumped trying to do it in a oner and had to rest. Went for it anyway, and it was pretty smooth. A pumpy little number, and a great find from the first ascensionist, even if he is a bummer.

Had a go on a toppy before Ed did 2nd ascent. Good work you strong boys!

First ascent. Stripped it of all the ivy a few weeks ago to find an amazing steep roof and groove with brilliant climbing all the way! First session couldnt link it in one but got all the moves and sussed out some decent gear. Today worked out better sequence and got it clean, then lead it first attempt. First first-ascent for me, great feeling!
