Rockfax Description
Good fun and almost a sport route at about 6b+. Climb a groove right of the ivy then move left to a hole and twin threads. Make some hard moves up past more threads to a lower-off on the traverse line of The Spider. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Strip back any new growth on the ivy as you go past as it can hide a foothold which makes getting across to the jug handle a fair bit easier!

FA. Gary Gibson 1983.

βeta: Where's the French grade option? F6b+, I reckon - features some pretty steep and stiff pulls on the pockets, and fairly sustained for it's height. Worth 2 stars as everyone seems to think.

βeta: Effectively a clip up, and a really good route. The pint pot handle IS still there! I don't know where they got the idea it had gone from?

βeta: You just need 6 quickdraws for this, the threads seem to have been recently replaced, but hard to get to the foot of the climb.
