Rockfax Description
The curving, slim groove high on the wall is one of the best limestone VSs in Britain. Start as for Wogs.
Follow Wogs to a point above the overhang at the start of its second pitch, then move up to a crack at the bottom left of the blank grey and white wall. Make a technical traverse right to the base of the slim curving groove and follow this to an easing above a small ivy patch. Exit the groove rightwards to a ledge and take the short wall above to the top. Magnificent. © Rockfax

Started up the cracks as it leaves wogs, got some good gear, but its a bit steep there, probably could have put another wire in higher to give me the confidence to climb high enough to step up for the traverse, not today though, need to develop some trad head, down climbed and finished up wogs.

D Berry 13/Apr/09 Lead β

Very good indeed. Thankfully there is a bit more friction once the slick holds of Wogs are left behind. The crux is the traverse, but maintains its interest all the way up the groove. Previously looked at but ended finishing up Wogs; without really leaving that route, then caught glimpses of the next team on it whilst abseiling out my gear.

Tried the direct start- much harder than 5a. Tricky traverse to get out from under the second roof and back in again above it.

with Rob Clement
Robfromcornwall 21/Mar/08 Lead O/S

Tried the direct start which is way more than 5a. Traversed in slightly below the line and continued up. Followed classic rather than direct line due to terror. Not sure it's that great though- it doesn't really follow the groove, quite meandery really.
