One of the West Country's great sport-routes. Low in the grade, but very pumpy and a touch polished. Start beneath a pocketed weakness.
20m. Move up the weakness on good pockets and then swing right to good jams in the horizontal break at 6m. Make a hard move to a good pocket then lurch up the wall, first leftwards and then back right to a final heave onto easier ground.
