28m. Formerly HVS, but the route shed a block from just above the overlap; the crux move is now much harder. About 10m left of the Withyhill Cave entrance is a prominent arched overlap: start under the centre of this. Climb the slab, crossing a left-rising diagonal crack (which, disappointingly, spits out nuts) to the overlap. With a runner on the sapling on the left, step up and place small wires above the overlap; then pull over with difficulty. Easy climbing leads to the narrow terrace. Belay on saplings a further 8m up the easy but very loose ground behind the narrow terrace, or continue to the top. (Reclimbed 22.8.11 at the new grade of E1 5c by B Mullan, C Lindley, M Davies).

had a look at the rock fall (and kicked some big stuff off it). This route will need some more work to make it (FCQ)safe.

Serious rock fall to the right on the overlap, this route seems okay. Top section loose as described.

Committed to the hard move, only to discover that a cam on the back of my harness had attached itself to the sapling :(
