Rockfax Description
Sustained and pleasant climbing with a well-positioned top crack. The first 9m are not well-protected. Start at a good nut belay just right of a narrow chimney. Move up a flake-crack and take the wall above to a move right into a triangular niche. Climb to the next horizontal break, step left, and follow the delightful face-crack to the top. © Rockfax

Brilliant route and so much better than you would imagine as you stare at the mossy crag from the bottom! Plenty of gear.

Maybe it's given HVS due to being relatively high above gear for hardish move lower down? The rest is definitely VS though.

Tom Last 22/Jun/11 Lead O/S

As good as they come and good gear throughout, easier than Royal Forrester though - VS 4c.
