A well-travelled little route tucked away on the far left of the Main Cliff. Start at a large rectangular block on the boulder slope.. 1) 4b, 9m. Climb up ledges and small corners to a belay ledge on the left. Escapable and slighty vegetated.. 2) 4b, 10m. The steep but short-lived corner provides the meat of the route. © ROCKFAX

Tom started halfway through pitch one, and it made sense for him to lead the whole route in one pitch. Plus it was starting to rain, so I wasn't that keen to lead P2! Felt tricky compared to the granite of w. Cornwall, and because it was wet.

Led it as a single pitch. Couldn't imagine why you would need/want to do it in 2 pitches.

Lovely second climb of the evening. A couple of interwesting moments but all good.
