A fine climb on good rock, starting from the base of the abseil. Now described in a single pitch and upgraded from HVS.
Climb the left-hand crack to a little overhang. Traverse right, go up to the bigger overhang and traverse left. Continue up the wall until a flake line appears on the right. Make a bold move to gain the line and continue to the abseil stakes.

There seems no sense in taking the uncomfortable belay at 25m.
1)5b,35m. Climb the left hand crack to a little overhang. Traverse right, go up to the bigger overhang and traverse left. Continue up the wall until a flaky line appears on the right. Make a bold move to gain the line and continue to the abseil stakes.
A whole grade harder than Golden Fleece, Argo and Quality Street so surely E1 5b.
