Did a traverse in from the right at the start which was difficult on bad gear and did an eliminate finish using top crackling only. Ok but Dunkled has much better to offer.

There's a better start off to the right of the holly bush, the other side of a tree: a vertical crack, which ends up being the crack line you follow all the way up the route. Gives a nice traverse left to the corner too.

Bit bold for a VDiff - but nice; now if I could only arrange some better weather and do more than 1 climb! Oh well, there's always next time!

Started to the left of the holly rather than to the right, a good bold fingery problem at 4b. Judging by the polish, most people go this way, but starting slightly right (below the corner) is a more consistent grade and fits better with the guidebook. Above that it's standard VDiff climbing, though rather run out on the traverse.
