Rockfax Description
A popular and pleasant line up the left arete of the quarry. A strenuous juggy start and awkward groove lead to a ledge. A grope around to the right should locate a good flake; a quick layback reaches a pine stump on a ledge (popular belay spot) then finish more easily out leftwards. © Rockfax

FA. Albert Shutt 1952.

βeta: Agree,not quite 2 stars. Didn't layback the crack, instead traversed right using a good foothold on the arete onto the face, then straight up to the tree. Gives good exposed moves, and no harder.
