Rockfax Description
A great line up the left-hand side of the crag which follows steep grooves. Start below a right-facing groove with a capping roof, as for Oriole.
1) 5c, 30m. Start with difficulty up the corner and continue until just before the roof. Pull around to the right and move up to a small ledge and a spike belay.
2) 5b, 10m. Climb up to a small roof and move left around this. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Top end of the grade. Climb the capped groove in the LH arete of the main wall (hard to start). At the overlap, traverse R and move up round the arete to gain another groove(Clonus LH). Either continue directly up to join the finish of Oriole or, after a few moves, go R to another groove and gain a ledge awkwardly. (Belay to avoid drag). Continue up the groove to the top.
