Another ‘best-of-UK-limestone’ at the grade. The polish is testament to the route’s popularity but does not really spoil the experience. Start beneath the obvious crackline left of the smooth grey wall.
1) Climb the wall and cracks to a good small ledge and sound nut belays.
2) Pull up from the belay and move through the bulge leftwards with difficulty. Head straight up to the crack and take this to a belay on top of the pillar.
3) Easy climbing leftwards to below an old garden wall. Up this to finish.

Incredibly polished, not very good and easily run into one long pitch.

Horribly polished & not much fun. A star for the line, I suppose.

Rock is in a bad way, polished to a high sheen in the bottom half of the route.

Great climb polished at the beginning well worth the star
