Rockfax Description
24m. Climb the open groove into a grassy bay (some loose rock) then trend left to the base of the actual chimney, corked by the chockstone. Climb this to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Pleasant climb with good ledges for feet. Guidebook advised that Diff route goes left from tree, but continuation to right up chimney and over chockstone is VDiff.

SCGale 23 Jun, 2018 Lead β The right hand route at the tree is less easy to protect (I used a micro wire), until you can sling the chockstone. There's basically nothing to anchor to at the top. Built a belay directly on top of the chockstone and scrambled off.

y2keable 16 Apr, 2015 Lead O/S Don't quite think it deserves a star, was covered in bird poop, there's allot of soil & rubble on the flatter parts and it's rather vegetated. Switching to the left side of the buttress beyond the tree makes for allot of rope drag and limited room to move. There's a nicer looking line directly upwards (instead of switching to the left side) but it looks like it's in HVS territory. May try climbing it next time.
