Rockfax Description
Great climbing on a very strong line with plenty of gear potential. Start below the long bulge-infested corner. Climb the corner past various bulges and overhangs (the second being the hardest) to less steep ground. Head up rightwards to a ledge under a steep wall and crack above it. Make some difficult moves to gain and finish up the crack. © Rockfax

spidermonkey ?? - Tough for e1, 5b. Gear was ok, but stiff moves around the overhang. Beware the slog up the hill from the road, ankle breaking terrain

Peter Reynolds 29 May, 2018 Lead O/S Did as one pitch straight up short fist crack after pulling through the overlap. The guidebook description of trending right up a grassy groove seemed contrived and would have added a shit load of drag.

Tom.Priestley 13 Sep, 2016 Lead O/S Good climb, clean enough, dries quick and loads of gear. Hard 5b tho. Deserves 3 stars. Did in one pitch but had to go up a different crack at the top due to drag.
