40m, 2 pitches. Quoting the guide book: A good introduction to climbing on this side of the valley, exposed with modest protection (read very poor protection). Start just right of the quarried hole 1 70 feet. The wall is climbed trending first right then back left to a good ledge overlooking the hole. Climb the edge for a few feet until an easy traverse right(Now an unpleasent heather and dirty traverse), round the cutaway rib, leads to a stance with a thread belay (Never found thread belay). 2 60 feet. Climb the wall above the stance eventually moving right to a rake leading left. Block belay (The block appears to have been eaten by the heather which now overhangs the slab and a leader would have to fight through VERY VERY steep armpit deep heather with just a small tree for holds. There is a large tree about 10m above, but comunication is difficult)

Think long and hard before you lead this one, the topout would be nasty given the amount of loose vegetation at the top.

utterly disgusting. A friendly introduction to the area? Is it bollocks. Extremely vegetated throughout, and a pleasant surprise at the top when confronted with 6ft of heather. Very serious to lead without napalm.
