Rockfax Description
An entertaining initial move gives this steep little line merit. Start on a perched block at the left-hand end of the main face.
Place some good gear. Bridge out over space and pull onto the rock using good but high jugs. This move is 4b if the jugs cannot be reached. Follow the steep wall above, just left of a crack, on good holds to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
30'. Start on a boulder at the LH edge of the more continuous section of cliff. Excellent gear allows an initial tricky move off the boulder to be enjoyed to the full. From here several possibilities present themselves. SDD describes route finishing on the right of Senior's Wall at VD grade. This would involve a somewhat L to R diaganol line. The Rockfax guide shows a more direct line on the left of the butress - steeper and a grade of HVD is given.

I started straight up but it is not sufficiently protected on the left for VDiff, so I switched to finish on the right.

simonhammond1966 26 Apr, 2013 2nd O/S This is a tricky climb and although the start described seems to make the route obvious it then gets much harder and steeper than you'd expect. Having read some more descriptions of routes on this part of the tor I'm beginning to think that the big ivy patch is covering some lines and that descriptions are getting confused. The line drawn in the westcountry climbs guide is good but its at least HS 4b if not VS 4b.
