48m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The crack and long twisting groove right of the thorn tree.
1) 4c, 22m. Climb the groove, then move right and up into a niche. Climb up and slightly left to a grassy ledge.
2) 4c, 26m. Follow the wide flake-crack to its top, then traverse right easily, passing a yew tree. Climb the groove, pulling out left on to the wall (peg) in a good position. Finish direct. © Rockfax

Phil Lyon 18 Aug, 2018 AltLd Great route with good climbing style required. The spike that rocks behind the yew tree fell off when I stepped up onto it. It is no longer on the route but embedded in the slope below after trashing my rucksack.

Jimbo C 3 Aug, 2014 AltLd O/S Hard to get used to this limestone trad after spending most of my time on grit. Lots of holds, most of them not very good, a few of them ready to fall off and lots of grass. An enjoyable outing tho. I led P1 but went to a stance on the right since the line in the guide is completely clogged with ivy.
