3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A well-positioned and exposed route that finishes atop the needle. Start low down on the front face amongst the trees beneath a very short boot-wide layback crack.
1) 7m. Climb the crack to a ledge with some big trees on it and a low, large spike. This pitch is easily avoided by walking to the ledge from the right.
2) 20m. From the right-hand side of the low spike climb the slab to below the buttress proper and continue up a crack-system just left of the arete to a steeper final section that eases at a good spike hold. Swing right to a stance and tree belay.
3) 12m. Climb above the tree for 2m on good holds until horizontal moves left around the arete under a nose access a corner/groove. Climb this easily to the needle. © Rockfax

We did after it was recommended as "just a fun climb really" The climb was really tough, i saw blood on the rocks and it was getting dark. Ben loved it, but i think that was because he thought he was gonna come off it. As did I. VD my eye!

If you're a new leader, it might be best not to start this one at 7pm like we did... first pitch lulls you into a false sense of security compared with the latter part of the 2nd pitch. Oh, and don't get your rope jammed on the 3rd either... nice climbing though :)
