Rockfax Description
An exciting and strenuous journey that uses the initial section of The Medlar to approach the cave headwall. Start at the tree.
1) 5c, 16m. Follow The Medlar to the small ledge under its difficult corner. Traverse right on the small overhung and undercut slab, before moving into a short corner and up to a foothold stance and belay.
2) 5c, 20m. Move up and then out left to the edge of the wall to gain the soaring corner/groove. Follow this all the way to its end and an abseil station. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A great route and aptly named . The first 2 pitches can be run together.

βeta: First pitch is great and can be completed independently before abbing off the pegs for the E5. Second pitch a little scetchier and harder given the moss but doable.
