25m. A raunchy romp on pockets, the size of which will blow you away. Follow a right-curling, streaked groove (twin threads) to a hole (thread). Step right; then launch up the steep pocketed wall. Above, step left and finish up the strenuous groove (as for the two previous routes). Two-bolt belay.

T Penning, P Cresswell 1972.

βeta: Replaced in-situ thread with a nice new bit of 8mm 20/09/19. A bit longer than it was but I had to guess before leaving the house!

βeta: Birds nesting mid-route. Dunno if it's protected or not, the nest and rat lunch gave me a bit of a shock on the way up

βeta: Nice climbing up the pockets, not as steep as we expected, but very poor protection leading to the top, along way above gear!! Birds nesting / young chicks - route should be avoided for now
