38m. Right Hand Crag, 15ft left of Questor. At the top of the grade this climb requires determination.

Ascend a shallow groove to a flake at 15ft. Don't go too high but instead make tricky moves to mount the flake on the left and continue up the wide crack to a small alcove under an overhang. Traverse left under the roof and then move up to the next ledge. Keeping low traverse right, well under the second overhang; then move up and follow the corner to the top. In-situ ring on the large tree can be used to abseil off or continue up to the footpath.

As of 2010 a huge roof has fallen off from just above this pitch. The second yew tree referred to in the 2007 guide book is now destroyed by this rockfall and has a coffin-sized block where the tree once stood, use this as a marker now for the climb.

F Cannings, P Littlejohn (Alternate Leads) 14/Feb/1970.
