38m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A thin and poorly protected start, but good climbing above, and the top pitch is stunning.
1) 5a, 16m. Climb over a fingery bulge, then move left to the main groove, which leads to a belay at the fault-line.
2) 4c, 22m. Pull left onto the side wall and climb up to a niche. Follow the right-hand crack above to the top. © Rockfax

Bold start! Had previously bouldered up the start twice, but never got as far as getting gear in.

Pitch 1 is nice. A little bold but the holds are all there and you reach the first wire fairly quickly.

5a start can be avoided easily. Crux is steepish and quite tricky at 4c.

Necky 5a to start, pitch 2 only VS but simply brilliant, with good moves, bombproof thread runners and outrageous positions
