15m. Another great gear route up the leftwards-slanting shallow groove. Undercut up the groove to a thread then make a long move up and trend left to the lower-off. Low in the grade.
FA. Martin Berzins, Chris Sowden, Tony Burnell 1984. The first hard line on Yew Cogar creeps in on the tufa-ridden rightside of the crag.

Much, much easier than Bustin The Block! (Which might be worth E6 for the onsight?).

An excellent pitch, low in the grade.

brilliant climbing, easy for E5 but felt about the same as Strapadictomy in the Peak.
