45m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Don't be put off by the scrappy start, the traverse under the roof is not to be missed.
1) 4a, 27m. Scramble up to the base of groove to a spike below the large tree (possible belay) and continue up the groove to belay under the roof.
2) 4c, 15m. Make a series of repetitive moves up and rightwards on the series of ledges below the roof until a final committing move round the end of the roof gains a rib. This leads to a tree belay and most people abseil off from here.
3) 8m. Climb easily up leftwards to the ledge. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the rather dirty and vegetated crack to belay just before or at roof. Traverse right ascending to second step and then tricky move around corner on jugs for hands but nothing for feet. Move past tree / abseil point to top

Had an epic. Climbed the HVS P2 of Yellow crack by mistake and didn't then end up setting up a belay to bring Lyd up before the roof. So by P3 belay after climbing a harder pitch and then the roof with ridiculous rope drag having only a single rope we where both extra on edge and abseiled off P3 belay. Great climbing!

Lead all pitches. Nice relaxed first pitch. Made a bit of a hash of belay, Julie wearing a rucksack was not a great plan ! P2 under the overhang was not technically that hard but good exposure; hardest part was deciding whether to go higher under the overhang like the previous group (off balance) or hand traverse round on middle ledge. Guide book not very clear unlike UKC description above) but chose right - the hand traverse option :-)

Carol lead P1 and I got 2/3 together. P2 is the one to do, very airy brilliant position but pretty polished.

Did this in 3 pitches rather than 2. 1st upto the holly tree which was scrappy followed by a pitch up to the corner which my partner really enjoyed then onto the final, excellent traverse under the overhangs.
