Rockfax Description
Short-lived and unbalanced but it follows a strong natural line.
1) 5a, 28m. Take pitch 1 of The Thorn to the chains.
2) 5b, 28m. Scramble along the cave (stance) then make tricky moves along the break, to a big hole (on Black Grub). Enter a steep groove which soon eases to floral scrambling. © ROCKFAX

Surprisingly good. Used as a way to get to Black Grub, thought it was going to be VD from memory, it wasn't, and much better.

Did this after Pocket Symphony - found it quite tough, hot heat and exposure! Very scary top out on loose dirt and rocks - better heading to the left.
