Follow The Thorn until a traverse leads out right to a ledge (possible stance to the right if required) then climb the face via a short crack and the wall above up a shallow groove running up towards the ivy. Cut left under this to reach the Ivy Gash. © Rockfax

Started up the upper wall but realised I had run out of quickdraws and had gone through most of my nuts. Climbed down and belayed at the insitu gear on the ledge, Rob led the wall as a 2nd pitch.

Fun route .... very painful to climb bare foot :)

jmills94 21/Jun/15 Lead O/S

seriously good route only let down by not being longer! surely worth 2 stars. Great pockets and lovely moves but the gear is a bit fidly. Well worth a look as an alternative finish to the thorn p1.

Same as Stagnation. Great climbing, by far better than West Wall Climb. Got to be worth at least 2*.
