[Above the greenery on holly tree route, 3 kb]15m. Stepped walls offer various options to gain a mid-height ledge atop the obvious square block. The wall above can be taken by jams or lay-aways. The final crack and holds are superb (and easier).

Another lead in my reborn climbing career! Grassy scramble lower down, much more fun higher up. Belay protection sparse, good thread for a sling though

Eventually got on the right route, having meandered across half of the crag. Rock at the top is nice, but the rest is agricultural at best.
Mr Fuller - Lead O/S - 10/Mar/12 with Ben Lewis

well led by Sally! As with all VDiffs in rocky valley, very awkward, but adventurous!
samthom - 2nd O/S - 29/Feb/12 with Sally

My first ever lead! Very wet and green, and difficult if you're short!

Broken ground. Barely worth it.

Rich Thornton - 2nd O/S - Sep/10 with Tom Ireland

Route finding is made easy by following the polished rock among the greenery, so presumably it was once a popular route!
