A vintage outing from JWP. Climb blocks rightwards and make a hand-traverse back left (not much gear) to reach the gully. The upper section gives easier blocky rambling in the gloom.

Excellent route!
The traverse onto the route is poorly protected.
The middle slab looks worse than it is.

I agree with the definitive guide - Diff for the normal route, VDiff for the (not very strenuous) direct.

Fantastic little route! Really nice and fun outing - I took two beginners up with me and they loved it.

Led this for a rest after trying an HS which turned out to be a sandbag, and an S which took half the skin off my foot, and wasn't much fun. Loved it, really good. Would give it 3* except that I'm not sure I'd have enjoyed the unprotected traverse much when I was leading VDiffs....
