Rockfax Description
A good little micro-route which is losing its battle with the ivy. Climb the wall to the flake then swing left to make some hard moves up to the break (avoid the chipped hold). Save a bit for the thin crack above. © Rockfax

So close first try. Really good route. Hardly micro route, longer than most routes on grit!
