25m. At the base of Pete's Wall is a large, chossy, roof-capped bay, bounded on its left by a grey arête, under which is a large buddleia. Start 3 metres left again, a metre right of a small buddleia 3 metres up. Climb up into a shallow scoop; then move up to cam placements under a small roof, using the unstable rib on the left as little as possible. Step up, locate holds high up left, and pull leftwards over the bulge; then boldly climb the right-trending shallow groove to another buddleia. Trend rightwards between saplings and move up onto the brown wall; then continue to the first horizontal crack. Climb rightwards (bold) to a second horizontal crack; then move right again and climb directly up the middle of the wall. Move back left as you near the top to finish at the jutting block.

Bottom section is artificial and loose. Top section is steeper, but still brittle. Offers a few good moves polluted by uneasy distrust of every thing one touches.

Some good climbing, but rather bold and with sections of untrustworthy rock.
