Rockfax Description
Bold and committing. Start right of the rib at the start of First of Class. Move up the wall to a large cam placement at an overlap and pull out left to another overlap. Above is a third overlap; move rightwards along it to a peg, then head up the wall to finish. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A bold route up the shallow scoop. Friend 2 (or 3) low down. The peg is reached with mounting trepidation, after which the difficulties ease.

A bold route up the highly attractive scoop between the overhangs and the obvious crack of Lagonda. Protection is spaced but just adequate. Climb extremely rough rock to a useful horizontal seam, move right to the 1st overlap (Friend 3, NOT 2 as the guide says), back left to the 2nd overlap (hidden gear) and bravely right along the 3rd overlap to a peg and easier finish.

RE Wightman and A. Phizacklea May/1988.
