Bold but with great rock. Reported to have lost a hold and maybe harder. Start on the right-hand side of a rock pool. Climb past a roof and up a flake on its left-hand side. Move rightwards up a wall passing a shallow groove to gain the upper corner. Weave up this, first rightwards, then finish back left (poor peg). Save some umpf for the final moves.

This now looks to be the correct description.

large (housebrickish) chunk of rock broken on ascent 07/10, removing a very positive pocket/jug. Possibly now harder.
