20m. Upgraded to Severe because of the alarming state of the rock. Start right of the apex of the Withyhill Cave entrance mound and climb the slab just right of its bounding rib. Trend right past overlaps and climb the easier but loose upper slab to trees.

Chossy route!

Quite a nice climb. The inital slab is really good rock and it is reasonably consolidated once you step over the overlap. I'd give it HVD
James Moyle - Solo rpt - 11/Jun/11

Probably worth Severe, for the initial run out and the looseness above.

Dire. Do not climb, unless you like the fact that there are few safe holds after the first 10m.

LOADS of loose rock, all the placements were crap due to the rock been so unstable. retreaed to the right.

Large amount of rockfall (up to microwave sized blocks coming down) during the lead, so I took shelter under a large overlap and watched to rocks come raining down. There is still a lot or rock waiting to come down. DO NOT CLIMB.
