The corner, overhang and groove is a good line. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Climb the groove and pillar left of the tower section containing Blowing for Tugs. Retro-bolted, without bothering to ask the first ascensionist's permission, to the manifest disgust of Eugene Travers Jones.

Getting dark so scampered up on a top rope. Not sure I'd like to lead it. Nice hidden pocket just where you need it.

Having failed to make it up Groping for Jugs because of nerves at the top, this seemed far more straightforward to me. I can't see how it would be a 6b, unless you have no leg strength at all for bridging. Really nice climbing with some fun hidden (but good) pockets.
