63m, 3 pitches. Approach from the cubic boulder, follow the path until you reach the wall, a few metres along to the right is a short scramble up to terrace.

Start around 1 metre right of Rib Route I. Follows the rib rather than the crack, but difficult route finding as it's easy to stray onto Route I or III (check the guide book).

The route tops out onto Offa-Dykes path, so descend via Easy Way Down or walk around to Woodcroft Quarry.

P1 really chewed me up and spat me out. Managed to get up to the overhang but just couldn't figure out the moves. Ended up taking the somewhat easier route (though overgrown) around the right of the bulge. P2 was fantastic, especially the finger jamming ramp. On the final moves to the ledge you can look down on massive holds and really enjoy the exposure. P3 was short, technical and bouldery with some loose holds but they seem pretty jammed in there.

springfall2008 07/May/15 AltLd O/S

Difficult to find the right route, I think I missed a peg on P1 and ended up going too far left. Not sure if the picture above and description of the tree in the crack is really this route, think that maybe route I? Second pitch we couldn't figure out which way it went (easy) and the third was nice but way too short. Think there are better routes elsewhere, e.g. Joe's route.

Think our previous attempt stayed on Route 1. First two pitches good fun if a little dusty - quite steep sections in places with great holds. Final pitch we went round to the right through the overgrown path and found a pretty short and rather odd final wall, which if climbed on the very right side had little crimps and was quite hard (if contrived).
