A poor man's Snap Dragon but with good climbing. Climb the wall behind the tree to a flake then move up and left to the edge of the wall. Climb up to join, and finish up, Gulle Gulle Groove to the break.

Bit harder after the thread snapped and took the hold with it.

desperate for the grade, nearer 6a , unless you traverse almost totally into gulle gulle grooves , which seems a bit contrived.

Quite a bit harder after the loss of the thread and somewhat scarier!

The holds do tend to suck you towards Gulle Gulle grooves, at least to bypass the footless bit of the wall at 20' or so.

Thought that this was harder than Match of the Day nearer to 6a than 5b. A bit of a sandbag at the moment.

Quite a reach for the good hold, probably a bit of a pop for shorties, hard to grade. Felt about E2 5b/c for me (just under 6ft)

In the days when it had the hold/thread it was E1 5b. It certainly isn't now!
