21m. Boldish start and a slightly grotty finish, but with a great middle section. The mid.-height crack sprouts grass, this and the upper section need a tidy up on abseil now and again.

petecallaghan 23 Aug, 2017 Lead rpt Required considerable patience on the part of my second. I figured it out in the end and was very pleased to lead it clean. Touch and go at several points Backed up the peg with a brass offset. Lots of gear in the crack for the crux. Still a great deal of vegetation in the crack, but a bit less than before my visit. We gardened a bit of loose rock at the top, but much still remains

petecallaghan 19 Mar, 2017 2nd Did a variation that traversed left 2m at the crux and then traversed right back again. Dominic ab'd down afterwards and cleaned the grass out of the crack at the crux. Get on it before the grass colonises it again. Made a nice contrast to Safari - very little of the rock came off in my hands.

Dominic Acland 19 Mar, 2017 - Veered off left to climb around the crux crack which was stuffed with grass; so can't quite claim the ascent this time ... but it's clean now and deserves more traffic - a lovely little route.

Ed morris 29 Feb, 2012 Lead O/S Not much real gear up to the peg which looks good. Bomber gear in the main crack for the crux rockover. Top section is potentially very loose. Many large flakes sound hollow. exit on the left on solid rock at the top. A good route but needs a proper 'pulling blocks off' clean.

Duncan Campbell 9 Jul, 2010 Lead O/S climbed with no prior cleaning..there was quite a bit of grass in the cracks making it a touch trickier as I had to clean on the go..the grade..if you clean on the go i'd say hard E2/soft E3 however with more traffic this will settle down to solid E2...micros + tricam for up to peg. peg i reasonable condition plus small micro useful to back up...top is loose take care!
