Rockfax Description
A strong line and a favourite first climb that follows the tree-draped corner above a small railed-off cave. Start 20m left of the huge corner of Sarcophagus at a small, railed-off cave.
Climb up just right of the cave to a corner at 4m. Move up and climb the right wall of the corner to ledges on the right. Climb back leftwards to below a tree in a corner. Climb the corner on good holds, past the tree (possible belay) to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Green Mantle steps right from the obvious corner of Tar Baby at 5m. Many climbers seem to be doing the harder Tar Baby in error.

1st ever top-roped outdoor climb, drifted off to right from crack which made climb more difficult. Initially used arms too much and not enough feet, better at the end.
