Good physical climbing, despite the rather vegetated appearance from below. Start by scrambling up the slope, past the base of the huge corner, to a belay below a layback-flake.
22m. Layback the flake to a sloping ledge and then enter the left-leaning corner which succumbs to good, old-fashion udging. At the top of the corner, traverse left to a bolt belay in an outcrop. Abseil off.

Good proper HVS trad climbing. A bit less vegetation on it now thanks to Marti, "The Gardner", Hallett. Don't be cocky (like me) and second it in trainers, the smeary slab at the top will make your eyes water.
