An amenable classic taking a good line up the smooth-looking wall on the right-hand side of the cliff. Scramble up grubby ledges to a fat peg belay below the wall. Follow the diagonal break that runs leftwards across the wall, passing between some much blanker terrain. Low in the grade.

Not sure how a dirty, grassy route gets 3 stars, worth doing if you are bored, with some 4c moves thrown in.

The scramble from the base of the chimney is worth roping up for especially if it is at all wet. I found the route nice but lots of the pockets were full of water/sludge

8 years on from the last couple of comments, I can report that the route is still vegetated and dirty. The approach path was a precarious nettle-fest too. All in all, I reckon it's best avoided. Nocturne (a 1 star VS) was a far more pleasurable outing.
