Rockfax Description
12m. After a tough start (5c?) follow pockets and slopers up to the break where a small thread (possibly also chipped?) and small cams protect the awkward (chipped) finish. Avoiding using the chipped hold, lest you be struck down, is nearer 5c. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Start just right of holly tree. Use pockets and a useful pebble to a welcome ledge. First protection can be found, then move up easily to a small break (micro cam useful), then make steeper pleasant moves up to a small thread. All that remains is the awkward top out this can be done without the chip at 5c, 5b with.
