An excellent and enjoyable climb, and also the only climb on the Original side to feature sustained pocket-pulling. Crank up onto a ledge, then swing through the obvious pockets to some decent crimps (crux). The crux may be height dependant, being easier for taller people. The crux is very-well protected, but the easier ground above is quite runout. It is probably 15 feet from the last bolt to the lip. The terrain is easy (5.8ish), but any leaders should still be comfortable on long runouts.
Look for the boltline immediately left of the obvious, jumbly "Why Crack." This is the only obvious line of pockets at Mentmore, so if you're looking at pockets, you're in the right place.
4 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Runout to the anchor! The anchor is also WELL back from the lip. Bring long slings, esp. if planning on TRing.
