65m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A brilliant climb on magnificent rock. Intimidating, but not that hard, most of the gear is fixed although some might find a small rack welcome.
1) 3, 15m. Make an easy rising traverse onto a sloping ledge.
2) 6a+, 35m. From the ledge, move out right until you are below a wide crack. Sprint up this to a hanging stance above.
3) 6a+, 30m. Climb steeply leftwards, then finish up the slab above, past a few bits of fixed gear, to the diagonal grassy break. Belay a long way up left along the sloping ledge. © Rockfax

Amazing climb, first pitch is harder than 3, and fairly poorly protected. Main pitches were amazing, very intimidating from below but the climbing was great with excellent holds and a brilliant atmosphere. Route is very well equipped, no need for trad gear, but take lots of slings for the threads. http://mp-m.uk/XgS9F

Intimidated by first pitch, not 3! Lost head game part way through pitch 2, totally pumped, struggled! 3rd pitch more enjoyable but by that time fairly exhausted! Again another time

Some of P2 very greasy (late morning) but a fab route. On topo in RF the belay at the end of P2 is marked too low. Worth taking a few nuts as some of the bolts are in very poor condition.

P1 and 2 - couple of rests trying to find the belay (it's higher than marked in the Rockfax guide). Mega route.

Lead P1 - another fairly scary traverse that day. P2 very sustained but awesome climbing. P3 quite tricky moves on slab. Used the last bits of daylight

Led P1+3. Awesome. Steep 2nd pitch. Don't be tempted to belay in the small recess. More technical third pitch. Dunked ropes in the sea when pulling down ab; oops.
