Rockfax Description
Climb the lower honeycomb wall to the break on good positive holds. The upper bulging wall takes most people by surprise and can cause problems if this is not your strong point or you're pumped out from the antics below you. A little condition dependent higher up. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start as for Shodan then move left and back right to the overhanging upper wall. Finish direct or step slightly right. Philippa was a barmaid in the Crown Inn, Groombridge in the early 1980s. This is a three star route.

Guy McLelland and Barry Knight 1981

Ticklists: Starred Southern Sandstone 6a's.

Went first go today. Threw a big high heel hook and then mantled up at the top. Not graceful, but effective

Great moves, and seems fine once you know where the holds are. need to go back and finish it.

Belayed Graham to the top break first so had some beta for the lower section. Definitely easier for the tall, felt very soft for 6a! Good route though!

all about finding the hidden undercut. the top which looks easy is probably the hardest bit. really really good moves

Pretty easy for the grade, hence going for the solo straight after. (First 6a solo)
