Yet another classic. Follow Inkerman Groove to the start of the crux traverse. Head off up the wall to a good wire and a little higher a peg.Steep moves above reach a hole containing a rampant bush and a good wire. Fight up through the bush (If it has not been pruned) to the top.

Superb. Like the routes up the shield on High Tor, but better. There's often a small bush growing out of the final finishing jug so it's worth having a look from above first - despite weeding, the bush just won't give up.
