Rockfax Description
The curving, slim groove high on the wall is one of the best limestone VSs in Britain. Start as for Wokes.
Follow Wokes to a point above the overhang at the start of its second pitch, then move up to a crack at the bottom left of the blank grey and white wall. Make a technical traverse right to the base of the slim curving groove and follow this to an easing above a small ivy patch. Exit the groove rightwards to a ledge and take the short wall above to the top. Magnificent. © Rockfax

βeta: There is a lower off at the top but it consists of 3 very rusty pegs, and is improperly equalized so you would be weighting one peg as you ab. Not my cup of tea so preferable is an easy move straight up from here to top out.

βeta: The direct's not bad too, & only slightly harder (straight through the overhang to the base of the big groove)
