22m. An excellent climb on well-featured, water-worn limestone. Start a few metres left of the low-level triangular overhang, below a peg. Approach the peg either from the left (a bouldery traverse) or the right (a stylish rock-over). Climb past the peg to an easing. Some hollow orange rock on the right is a ‘blind alley’; move up left instead. Continue up the wall past two in-situ threads and pass a small roof with a long reach for a good hold. Pass a single peg where the lower off used to be and continue up the cleaned wall to reach a small holly tree, with insitu rope slings/ ab rings forming a belay/ lower off.
