65m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The route of the crag, great climbing up a big bulky buttress on lovely rock.
1) 4b, 32m. Climb the groove that leads to the overhangs and continue up until it gets too difficult. Then make a move round the rib on the right to a delicate foot-traverse right to a groove and soon, a large ledge and big fat tree belay.
2) 4b, 30m. Drop down and hand-traverse the huge flake out left then climb the face to a small ledge (possible stance on One Step..). Step up and make hard moves into the polished slanting groove. Finish either side of the roof above this. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A wonderful route. Head up and right to large ledge (belay). Then fabulously exposed 2nd pitch goes out left along the huge flake. Head up obvious line above, good holds. Tricky crux, entering the groove near top. 3 stars.

Blake 26/Apr/14 -

*Please avoid this route* there is a nest of recently hatched barn owls on the first pitch. We backed off after noticing them and other climbers should do the same. They take up to 14 weeks to leave the nest, during this time it would be great if climbers could respect their privacy and give them a chance.

Mervyn led p1, I got p2. I can quite see why accessing the crux groove is thought hard - but unlock the puzzle and it is only 4b - Mervyn didn't even pause to think, he just floated up. I took 10 mins and offered up 5 times before I got it. Didn't weight the rope at any point. Best route of the trip.

Long time since I'd first done this route. I'd forgotten how great it is! It is hard for the grade. We also did Mensor which seemed easier to me. If there's any doubt about the second's ability to complete the hand traverse unaided it might be a good idea to belay on the good ledge about 20 ft above. Communication will be easier and 100 ft of rope will give a lot of stretch!
