An enticing and subtle line starting near the top of the slope. Climb up a crack and then out leftwards to a groove and follow this to the top. Good climbing.

This also has a direct start at about 6a+.
Start next to Bawdy House, then reach up through the bulge and climb the rib above, joining Ghost at the top of the groove. No bolts. Top-rope it.

A block has come away +/- half way up. This may make the route slightly harder. Not reclimbed afterwards.

the start is a bit hairy for the second, i led it and 2nd it, and id rather be clipping it up anyday

It has obviously suffered a rockfall but it doesnt seem to affect the grade, the first clip is still the crux.
Al Evans - 12/May/03

Don't say that Al, I gave up after the 1st clip coz i thought it was going to be sustained and I felt tired, arse, got to go back now!

I started this about a metre to the right of the first bolt - frickin impossible starting it direct at this grade being 5'8"...
Wilbur - 05/Jun/05

You DO start 1 metre to right of first bolt and traverse in!

Bad bolting if you ask me...
Ben Stokes - 06/Jun/05

Phew - i can tick the onsight in that case!! Cheers Steve!

Good climbing, first bolt is a bit hairy - we pre-clipped just to be on the safe side. I found the final move to the lower off quite tough but my cousin just sailed through it; probably just me and my big knees getting in the way.

Good route, but did it as a warm-up, and the first moves are NOT a warm-up...
Phil Murray - 11/May/08

this route has alot of loose rock. especially near the top. fairly difficult for the last move to lower of as you are too far to the right. but i seen some people ok with it.
Daniel White - 22/Mar/09

Tricky first moves to clip the bolt - looks like a flake hold has come off fairly recently. Nice route though - didn't notice any other loose rock
