Rockfax Description
An interesting link-up. Start as for Porky at its wide crack.
Climb the crack to meet up with The Lord Falmouth on the left and move up to its jutting ledge. Hand traverse the ledge right and swing along good holds, past the niche of Porky, to a ledge on the arete. Finish direct via some arete hugging moves. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Currently (12.07.17) a bees nest in the niche on Porky's - beware!

Start up the crack of Porky, continue left across the top of the slab, before traversing back right across the break, past the niche of Porky to a ledge and finish up around to the right of South East Buttress.

Ticklists: West Country Climbs.

Nice climb, but I think the direct variation looks more satisfying, must go back and do that. Avoiding the overhanging arete is this right choice for a nervous second though!
