Description:

Found at the right (east) end of the cliffband, left of a very large, low roof, and immediately left of a curving crack ("The Why Crack," 5.7 trad). One of Mentmore's only pocket climbs: the crux, on nice pockets, is excellent, but the remainder is so-so. Run-out, on easier terrain, from the last bolt to the anchors.

Descent Options:

rap/lower off, or walk off at climbers-right.

3 out of 5 stars A fun one

Fun pocket moves, good clipping stances. Not a big deal: finding a hidden crimp when exiting the pockets keeps this climb at its grade. The top IS run-out, but probably only on 5.7 terrain. Just don't fall. Worth climbing for the 10-15 feet of 10c pockets.
The Falcon Guide rates this route at 5.10c/d. It's solid at 10c, but 10d feels like a stretch.
