[ my .hill., 3 kb]56m, 2 pitches. 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

Did crux pitch via Pocket Symphony. The most terrifying part was the scramble through the grass at the top...
wolverine - 08/Sep/12 with Thunderthighsontheloose, Iain Mount

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.
