20m. Start at the ochre-stained tufa-streak. Climb the streak, surmount the roof with great difficulty, then move right and up to a chain belay below a yew tree. At present some nuts are required on the easier upper section.
FA. Steve Rhodes 1986. A very hard line that required a major effort by the first ascensionist. Initially yo-yoed in the style of the age and then redpointed as the new ethic became accepted.


Just about a sport route, but would benefit from a rebolt.

Fully bolted. Awkward finish to gain lower off. The mid-height crux is absolutely nails.
