44m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A superb second pitch follows the hanging rib right of Manx.
1) 4b, 14m. Climb onto a pedestal then continue up the groove to a bizarre stance in a unique cave.
2) 5a, 30m. Climb up right then traverse left above the cave to access the right wall of the hanging prow. Follow this with interest to a possible stance and finish up the wide crack of Manx over on the left. © Rockfax

Led this in a somewhat hilarious fashion, tried to rest in the overhanging middle of the crux as I definitely was not climbing that finger crack. Managed it by pulling up on pockets, spent about 20 minutes contemplating what would have been a slightly traumatic fall from my last bit of gear way of right.....

I did the first pitch (completing Lobo) before Keir took over for P2 & the crux - getting onto the prow above the cave - "terrifying" - a very stretchy placement of a hex before clinging onto the wall and moving up to a good jug just before it goes over the top to join up with Manx - great second - including hanging from one arm & knees bent (yes, I looked like a monkey!) in order to wriggle loose the first hex.
