20m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
20m. A classic from way back when (the begining of the 20th century). Climb the crack in the front of the buttress to a possible stance, then step out right and climb the thinner crack that leads rapidly to a groove and then the final arete. © Rockfax

Felt quite stiff at the grade, the move right from the first platform was very commiting

Tackled second thinner crack as layback up slab. Don't know if that's the route but it worked for me.

Tweed jacket & breeches would help on the first crack, rather than pertex & nylon

An interesting climb with a tricky start, and a bizarre move off the block. Rather green made it feel more like a hard hs 4c

Tricky moves at the start and on top of the first block.

Lots of variety. First crack is awkward, second thin crack feels like it wants to swing you off and final slab has no gear but is quality. Really enjoyable.
