35m. Start 2m to the right of the cave entrance halfway down the earth slope. Climb a narrow seam for 4m and cross a vegetated break. Continue straight up on reasonable rock towards the top of the right-rising overlap. Move up and then across left to finish as for The Duke of Cambridge.

cas smerdon - 2nd - 04/May/11 with mark j and trevor

Cleared brambles and nettles at the top and cleaned a bit more on descent. After second lead with Brian we are sticking with 'severe' as it is a bit bold in places though nice climbing on small holds. It goes straight up from the narrow runnel, veering left towards 'The Duke' at the top where the vegetation takes over on the direct line.
