The curving, slim groove high on the wall is one of the best limestone VSs in Britain. Start as for Wogs. Photo on page 301. Follow Wogs to a point above the overhang at the start of its second pitch, then move up to a crack at the bottom left of the blank grey and white wall. Make a technical traverse right to the base of the slim curving groove and follow this to an easing above a small ivy patch. Exit the groove rightwards to a ledge and take the short wall above to the top. Magnificent.

Awesome. Sustained VS 4c goodness.

The direct's not bad too, & only slightly harder (straight through the overhang to the base of the big groove)
