Rockfax Description
10m. Pull onto the arete as for Too Young to Fly and shuffle right until an elongated pocket can be reached by harsh cranking on the prominent nipple. Head up the steep wall into a left slanting groove that leads to the big grass ledge, then escape up the groove at the back of the ledge. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
VS 5c in the definitive guidebook, but Tony Marr has confirmed that this was a printing error!

βeta: If it goes where I think it does, this is way way harder than VS 5a. So, you shuffle your feet along the break for maybe 10 feet. Get some wires in before you get too pumped. Make a big move up right for a nipple. Feet up, pull really hard and go for jugs above. I'd put this at something more like E2 5c.

Dave Warburton 13 Jul, 2013 Solo rpt Couldn't remember if I'd done this before. Climbs well with a locked off back-three in a pocket up to the break.
