A good 1st pitch is spoilt by the grotty finish to the 2nd one.
1) 4c, 20m. Swarm up onto the flake containing the large tree. Continue up and left, mantelshelf into the cracks then up these to reach a small but good stance below the notch in the roof.
2) 4c, 35m. Climb the chimney and groove above then traverse off right over grass and grot to a finish up Babylon's top groove.

The start of the rising traverse from the groove has some very loose rock. Take great care.
