40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An excellent and fairly popular route.
1) 5c, 19m. Climb the wall leftwards to a vague grassy groove. Follow it, past a peg, to an old bolt then make hard moves past this. Move up to a sloping ledge below the level of the cave and belay on some large gear.
2) 5c, 21m. Climb up to the break and step right to below a corner. Pull up this and follow it to a sloping ledge. Take the ledge leftwards to join Carnage. Finish up this. © Rockfax

Bleating like a spring lamb on second! Hid in the cave in snow showers.

In one big pitch - worked well this way. At the top (in fact most of the way up) the wind was blowing a hoollie - felt wild! Brilliant route.

Chris was supposed to be taking me up Carnage but was off route! He backed off the 1st pitch so I led it. He backed off the 2nd pitch so I led it. It started to snow near the top and the holds were getting wet. I had so much rope drag that I had to pull through 20ft of rope just to get onto the top. A higher grade tick than I was expecting.
