Rockfax Description
Start on the upper ledges just right of an ivy patch. Head up leftwards (bolt) with difficulty to a flake and follow it to the break. Move left to a rest prior to ascending the flake and steep wall (pegs) to finish at the lower-off of Clashing Socks. © Rockfax

βeta: This has probably not had an ascent for at least a few decades. The start is now clean and ivy free. The old missing 8mm bolt has been replaced with a stainless expansion bolt. The bolt is crucial to protect the starting moves which are now probably much harder since the collapse of the starting ledge. The top peg which snapped has been replaced with a couple of pegs. The topout is horribly sandy but is is quite easy to step up left to the Clashing socks lower-off.
