Description

This route was overgrown and wet at the start, but recently is much improved

Start at the far right side of the Buzzard Wall. Work your way up to a small ledge covered in pricker bushes (sometimes wet). Stay left to avoid the prickers then head left onto the face heading for the bolt. Slab straight up looking for a 2nd bolt. When you get to the roof, plug in some gear and pull the crux. There are several options here, none of which seem easier than the next. Finish on the Smooth as Silk anchors

Protection

Mixed. 2 bolts. 2 bolt anchor over the top on Smooth as Silk.
