Nowhere near as bad as its name would suggest! The curving line of tufas just right of the large yew tree provides some big holds that vanish tantalisingly close to the lower-off. It can be linked to Videodrome at 7c, direct up the wall.

This has to be one of the most enjoyable limestone routes of its grade north of Portland
Janet - 14/Mar/02

One of the best routes of it's grade anywhere in the country. Great line only slightly spoiled by the lack of a 'proper' finish.

Really nice route, shame about the finish.
tbertenshaw - 20/Jun/06

Rather appealing route although the clipping finish is all a bit Euro-sport. Not particularly cruxy as it's uphill all the way, a meaty little pitch.
