Rockfax Description
Often wet but good when dry. Start right of the chimney. Climb up and left then continue more direct, past a hard section, to easier moves. At about 20m, trend across right to a ledge. Follow holds and a crack up the steeper upper wall eventually moving left to a tree. Belay further back. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Decent soft touch on the far L of the crag, following a clean black wall between the severe chimney and the drainage streak. The start is a little bold.

JonesE 14 Jul, 2018 Lead O/S Good intricate climbing, felt like a slate route. Had to be inventive with my gear at one stage as I didn't bother with larger cams. Well happy with the placement though.

MarkFoster 3 Jul, 2018 Lead O/S Climbed first part of Agapanthus as it looked much cleaner with more gear (which was pretty good; couple of great tricam pockets!). Felt pretty soft doing it this way-HVS? Engaging climbing though-worth doing and totally dry today.

SGD 21 Jul, 2013 Lead O/S Really good. Found it a bit reachy especially the crux but never desperate and it eases off right after the crux (2 low wires). Good positive hols in the upper crack - there is also a jammed wire.

Falko 28 Mar, 2012 Lead β Great climbing. I had beta by virtue of the fact that I abseiled down the route with a brush 'borrowed' fron Ynys Ettws (in order to sweep off the perceived detritus on the wall). One hardish move at approx 8m. Curious but effective (though untested) pro below that crux. Abbed off 'in situ' slings and maillon at the tree. The route is 28m not 48m as described in some guidebooks.
