315m, 7 pitches.

Rockfax Description
VS. A good route following a strong natural line and with a grand finish. The whole thing can be managed on a single rope although this might make retreat difficult. Start at the groove where the name is scratched.
1) 4+, 45m. The vegetated groove, and its cleaner continuation lead to a tree belay. The groove 12m to the left is a better and cleaner alternative, with no change in the grade.
2) 4, 45m. Traverse diagonally right to a tree and continue past a pair of bolts to a belay on a pair of pegs.
3) 4+, 30m. Move right into a groove with a bush and climb this. At the its top move right up slabs to belay on a huge ledge.
4) 4+, 55m. Scramble up right to a left slanting break (possible belay), and climb this to a long ridge. Follow this to the top of a pillar and a two bolt belay in a corner.
5) 4+, 50m. Move up and left into a groove and left again into another. Up this to an exit on the left to ledge and peg belay.
6) 4+, 45m. Continue up the ridge (pegs) to reach a ledge just below the crest, single peg belay.
7) 3, 45m. Move up right onto the ridge and traverse right to first deep notch in the ridge, and a 3 bolt belay with wire cable. © Rockfax

Brilliant day out. 7h 30m car to car climbing as a 3 and not rushing. The climbing is reasonable, with a few sections being excellent. But the atmosphere and exposure make this into a very worthwhile route. A fair few old pegs and some bolted belays, but not all and definitely consider this a trad route, take a full rack. Abseil off the back then a fun scree run descent back to the crag base.

Rockfax pitch lengths are way off. Good route with some route finding needed. Pretty much trad all the way.

ASCENT: Some route finding difficulties as pitch lengths given are mostly too long and it is perfectly possible to do fewer longer pitches here as plenty of belaying opportunities. Ended up doing a harder looser variation higher up but still good although the harder routes in the area appear less vegetated. DESCENT: No problem abseiling off back in 2 abseils with single 70m rope, would have needed a third with a 60m. Much better, if you have double ropes, to abseil back down the west face off shiny bolts and chain which you can find at the same point on ridge, this brings you down to big ledge and avoid the steep scree slope at the back.

Lead 1,3,5 &7. We backed off Delicatesan, but this saved the day. Done with 5 nuts and slings, but adequate fixed gear so safe.

Spectacular location. So-so climbing. Christian & Alys 2nd party. Not obvious what happens after pitch 5/6. Took 2PB behind 2nd tree about 10m below ridge. Pitch lengths more like 30m, 30m, 30m, 55m, 25m, 40m, 45m. Descended in dark.
