25m. Climb Lorna's Lunch until, just below a sapling, it is possible to stride right into another crack system, which is climbed to saplings.

Yup. I fell on a S slab. Twice. O the ignominy. Ellie lead up the slime. In my defense I was checking out the friction of the smears in prep for the route next door. I guess the frosted vegetation and the frozen hail at the base of the route was a clue that the slabs were not in top condition

Last section after the sapling very overgrown, lowering point had moss growing on it and didn't look trustworthy. As a variation on Lorna's lunch, no idea why it gets a star.

Disappointed with this. Don't know why it has stars. Stepped right above the ash tree as per the guidebook; lower as per the UKC guide looked a little better. Either way last 5 metres was grassy ledges and no gear placements. Although, I did find and eat a wild strawberry on one ledge :-)
