Rockfax Description
The lower slabby wall is worth seeking out but the upper wall is best avoided. Climb up to a right-trending line of holds. Follow these then pull up to a crack. Make a hard move up left onto some crozzly rock and continue direct to the ledge. Either climb out carefully rightwards towards the abseil line, or lower-off/belay from your pre-placed rope. © Rockfax

βeta: I was glad the star pointed me towards it as I enjoyed it. Had no such gear worries. A possible escape route too.

βeta: Less good than I thought when writing the above description. There isn't a really solid runner on this with the only good ones being in the worrying bubbly rock band. Not much fun - avoid.

Theo Moore - UKC and UKH 29 May, 2017 Lead O/S Actually a pretty good route with spaced gear at the start and good moves. The top isn't super loose, it's just a bit Swanage.

ASchwirtz 4 May, 2014 Lead O/S Rock fax topo in old book is incorrect, swap it with the E3. Gear is not too good, but the grade of E2 5b is about right. Top of route is loose and probably worth avoiding up ab gully (on ab line)
