The 1962,1985 and 2002 guides mention it starts 15M behind a holly tree in the scree at its foot. (this start to be re-checked!)

1.14M Climb the short wall and continue to the back of a broad ledge.

3. 30M Climb the flake by its left edge, step right and ascend to a small stance on the face.To finish climb crack passing a bulge to a heather ledge and easy rocks then lead to the top.
