A route of great character. It is unusual in that most of the climbing takes place inside the cliff! It is traditional to climb it on a wet day with a large team for added entertainment. Start by scrambling up to the base of the crag, to the right of a streaked wall, by a prominent rock arch.
1) 20m. Move up and right to a short wall and find a crack. Climb this to a ledge and move right to a tree at the base of the chimney.
2) 8m. Back-and-foot frantically to gain the ledge/path in the chimney on the right.
3) 20m. Walk along the base of the chimney to where the pathway ends. Climb up the chimney again to exit back into the daylight at a large ledge.
4) 15m. An exposed and polished final slab leads to a belay on the top of the crag.
