15m. About 8m right of Lime Chimney. The steep corner line gives a sustained and well protected climb to a large ledge with a tree. Gain the ledge with difficulty and finish up the back corner. Use of the tree for anything other than runners will merit a disapproving 'tut-tut'.
One of the crag classics which has sadly become rather polished.

βeta: Felt as hard or harder than some HVS i have done, with polish, hard start and lack of gear in first moves , very good though.
