116m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Three exacting long pitches giving tremendous climbing.
1) 5b, 40m. Climb easily up to the roof then gain the groove. Follow this to a ledge then climb the wall above and left to a large ledge.
2) 5b, 45m. Head up easily behind the belay and get stood on the pinnacle. Follow the continuation groove above to a ledge. A wall leads to another ledge.
3) 5b, 35m. Gain a left-slanting ledge above and traverse left to the second groove. Follow this to easier ground and the top. © Rockfax
