38m, 2 pitches. 1) 5c, 24m. Climb the crack steeply through the bulges then follow the right-trending groove to the small but comfortable stance on Pothole Wall. Quite hard work at the grade. 2) 5b, 14m. Traverse left to pass the bulges then finish back rightwards up the hanging rib and into the shrubs - exposed. © ROCKFAX

First proper e2, did as one pitch and created a little rope drag. some crumbly loose holds on the first pitch. no really hard moves, but the top pitch feels quite committing esspecially with the overgrown rose bushes and slightly damp top out! great position.

One of my favourite E2s. The brambles aren't too bad at the moment.

Led in one pitch, ropedrag wasn't a problem, brambles on the last few metres were! If you're reading this ahead of doing the climb, please take some secateurs! The traverse felt very airy. Excellent route.

Nice climbing on P1. Good gear for exposed part of P2, but the moves felt disappointing... Horrid overgrown topout
Matt Fry - Lead O/S - 09/Sep/08 with Sam Dixon

Craaazy! leaders top gear all fell out, leaving me with no gear between me and him on the second pitch, didnt fancy the bulge as would have swung very hard into opposite face if i fell, so climbed up an evil green groove on the left, dodgy!

i did second pitch, great exposure, not as hard as it first seems, shame about the thorn-plastered top out.

Lost my nerve and pulled on in-situ thread near top 1st pitch. Nervy gear....thought it was desperate!
