One of the original classics of the crag is now very polished but, if you can handle that, the climbing is superbly sustained.
1) 4b, 15m. Follow the slabby groove, turn the overhang on the right, then traverse left to a small stance and tree belay.
2) 4c, 20m. Head up the fine groove passing an awkward bulge.

Surmounting the overhang is fun and surprisingly easy, but I wouldn't give this 3 stars. The pockets near the top were full of grime too!
