Rockfax Description
Climb to the overlap then use the flakes on the right to reach a traverse leading out left to a rest in the Monk's Groove. Move left and climb the crack until a rapid exit to easy ground can be made. The start is bold, the rest somewhat safer. © Rockfax

βeta: Enjoyed this. Soft for the grade I thought: the gear in the first half is maybe not super-solid but the climbing isn't too technical, and the crux on the upper wall is very safe. Wouldn't baulk at E1? Despite sounding wandering it's actually a good climb up a reasonably decent line; certainly worth a star.
