Rockfax Description
A 'one-move-wonder' route up the narrow side slab. Climb the right-hand side of the slab to a break. Step up left and follow the centre of the slab to the top overlap. Pull through this by a crack in its centre and belay on the ledge above. Finish up the short wall at the back of the ledge. © Rockfax

βeta: Cabbage? Eh? One move wonder route, with little to recommend it (though perhaps worth it for the one move). Up the slab, cross the overlap at the cracks (hard for 4c), and with a slight lack of gear, but VS all the way...

βeta: I remember that cabbage, dodgy even when I did it, I thought it was worth HVS.

βeta: The cabbage has now disappeared, and the route is now possibly worth HVS 5A.

mattx1123 20 May, 2018 Lead O/S Great slabby HS climbing, then definitely a one move wonder, followed by a decent run out through the top garden...! Belayed here on 50m ropes, then led up the steep bonus wall at the end to finish.

harold walmsley 13 Aug, 2015 Lead O/S Wasn't so keen on this. Not too well protected on somewhat fractured rock low down. Good, well-protected crux at the overlap but this is hard 5a (maybe more) if done direct at the cracks as described (easier on L as Charles discovered). The crack in the slab above the overlap is now full of vegetation. It may be easier if this hides a good hold. If there is one, I didn't find it.

Albie 5 May, 2002 Lead dog After lunch and a bit of a rest took a look at the VS at the far right. Steeper than the other with a definite overhang section. The first part was steep and not well protected, hard to work on it and my feet were killing me. Had to rest under the overhang before throwing myself at it - in vain. Couldn't find any decent handholds to pull myself over. Gave up and traversed left to use the HVS route, which proved easier - unfotunatley the left turn induced rope drag just as i went over - a very hairy move. Then i had to haul up the slope completely unprotected until the top. I was so happy to finnish that one. Fiona also had an epic seconding - and was to scared to rest on the rope.....but she made it in the end. I was too tired to do any more climbing [the others tempted me to the pub] but fiona stayed on with richard and vicky. .....later on that day vicky took a fall from the top of the HVS when her geaar came out when her anchor collapsed and she fell 40m, stripping some of her gear and landing between some large blocks at the bottom receiving a serious head injury. Richard ran for help while fiona gave first aid. Vicky surviced to climb another day.
