56m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Short-lived and unbalanced but it follows a strong natural line.
1) 5a, 28m. Take pitch 1 of The Thorn to the chains.
2) 5b, 28m. Scramble along the cave (stance) then make tricky moves along the break, to a big hole (on Black Grub). Enter a steep groove which soon eases to floral scrambling. © Rockfax

FA. John Sumner late 1950s 1957

Thunderthighsontheloose 8 Sep, 2012 2nd Did this after Pocket Symphony - found it quite tough, hot heat and exposure! Very scary top out on loose dirt and rocks - better heading to the left.
