The easiest climb on Lower Falcon But perhaps good VS rather than mild.A good introduction to the crag.Starts up a groove above a small grassy bay left of an Ivy mass,About 50'left of The Niche route. P1)Climb to a grass ledge then a short groove above to a niche. A traverse line is followed to a groove ,Up this and step left to the holly tree. 80'5.7 P2)Climb the groove above the holly then follow the ramp left and to the top of the crag. An Excellent pitch. 55'5.7+
