9m. Start as for Shodan then move left and back right to the overhanging upper wall. Finish direct or step slightly right. Philippa was a barmaid in the Crown Inn, Groombridge in the early 1980s. This is a three star route.

Belayed Graham to the top break first so had some beta for the lower section. Definitely easier for the tall, felt very soft for 6a! Good route though!

all about finding the hidden undercut. the top which looks easy is probably the hardest bit. really really good moves

Pretty easy for the grade, hence going for the solo straight after. (First 6a solo)
