Worth seeking out. Climb up and right to enter the right-hand of the parallel cracks. Finish up this by sustained climbing.

Lovely Route, nice and easy.
Steve Barker - 24/Oct/03

Surprisingly good, although not all that easy for the grade. Safe with careful gear placement (back up that peg!)
Dave Garnett - 10/Jun/04

Solid VS 4c getting into the crack (and that's from someone who is pretty comfy with VS and cracks), strenuous to protect that bit. The start is the usual limestone grassy shit but the finish is pretty neat.

Some HS! I'd believe VS 4b/c. Well worth the scree & nettle approach.
John Hutch - 12/Jun/08

Quite high in the grade, but neither VS nor 4c.
