Climb the diagonal and increasingly grassy crack left of the big roof to meadows.


don't bother. first half is nice but the crack on the second half of the route is now heavily vegetated. Unless you pull all the grass (and woodlouse!)out theres not much gear left

Bad condition. The route's horribly over-grown and I needed to do some gardening to get any gear in the second half of the crack.

Yes, it's overgrown, but that means it needs more traffic, not to be ignored! It's a nice line, and I don't think it's as overgrown as it possibly was now anyway. I soloed it to the ledge and decided the top half too necky without a rope, since the route changes style from positive to smooth. Luckily the ledge is big enough to sit on and wait to be rescued :)
