A reasonable old climb, but it is suffering from lack of traffic. Climb the long pumpy crack past a tricky bulge. Continue slightly left up the cleanest rock to the top.
FA. Jack Street, John Ibbotson 1965. The second tried to lead the route first, but his attempts resulted in the route name.

the route really needs a good bit of gardening to bring it into line with the 1 star award. at the moment it is far too vegetated and full of soil and sand.

Not a bad little route if cleaner!

Really quite loose now. Shame but good practice for north Devon.

The John who peeled was called Ibbotson.
