45m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4c, 20m. Climb the shallow groove with a wide crack just right of the tree at the foot of the face - steeper than it looks - then as it fades trend right to a belay and good stance on the terrace.
2) 4c, 25m. Follow the slabby left wall of the open groove then trend up left again up the loose and grassy scoop above. Finish up the fine but short-lived jamming crack high on the left. © Rockfax

Lead both pitches. Thought this was much better then Medusa, a good knee jam solves the first pitch. If the traverse to the top crack were to be cleaned I'd probably give it 3*, 2* as it is (the grass really dissuades from moving towards the brilliant finale on the left). Pitch 1 now has a nut in it, yours if you can get it out.

Move halfway up the first pitch was a bit perplexing. Chalked up crack seemed of little use. Possibly missing the obvious beta!

Pitch 2 - shame about the middle of the second pitch being so loose and overgrown.

2nd pitch. Top position/crack is great, further left you go the better.

led P1 which I thought was the crux pitch as the 2nd pitch seemed to be 4b max. Both are good, a great route overall.
