A nice little route - tucked away on Harvey's Wall - so gets few ascents and is amazingly unpolished! It follows a diagonal crack, which is well protected with small-ish cams and nuts, however is a bit muddy in places with grass growing out of it! Did it with the first half entirely wet with seepage - making the footholds rather entertaining - and with drips coming from above! Upon exiting the layback crack it becomes utter rubbish - a completely unprotectable overgrown bramble-infested joke - was using clumps of grass and twigs for holds - only to finish up anchoring and abseiling off a small tree, which despite having a cable anchor around it, is set to rip out by its roots someday! I'd give this route a star if someone kindly put a bolted anchor in on the seemingly solid recess of rock just above the exit from the crack!

Amazing first section following the crack with a great final few moves at the top of the slanting crack. Section above is loose and run out, with no gear at all. Could not find the bolts for abbing off that we were told were there.

If this was on Sea Walls it would be a polished classic. Annoying descent though, abbed off the fencing cable thing through the brambles

Really good climbing and great gear, the lack of anchor at the top spoils the fun to some extent (unless you like crazy scrambles and mad abseils).

despite the grass growing out of the crack, its actually an ok route. Slipped about a bit on the crux due to wearing studded trainers as my feet were in agony. Abseiled off the fencing way above reaching the ground on rope stretch.

Supprisingly nice climbing, the one thing that really lets this route down unfortunately is getting from the top of the actual climbing to the belay which is on a tree really far back and is a nightmare to get to.

First real trad lead climb. easy apart from scary unprotected top move.
