[Mick  first HS lead of Tombstone Vicarage Cliff Culm Coast Cornwall, 2 kb]Excellent climbing at the grade taking a central line up the the middle of the wall. Start at a line of weakness below the lowest point of the overlap in the centre of the wall. 21m. Move up pleasant cracks and edges to the overlap and make an awkward move through it at a wide notch. The upper cracks are less taxing. © ROCKFAX
Climb to lowest point of overlap, pull over and ascend straight to obvious sling belay - use this for abseil
