137m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A superb route, perched above the steep East Wall. Great positions and rock, though a bit polished in places. Start left of the main slab at a smaller slab tucked in against its edge.
1) 4a, 30m. Climb the subsidiary slab, on polished holds, to a stance on the ledge at its top.
2) 16m. Move right up a scoop onto the main slab and climb its edge to a good ledge.
3) 15m. Continue up the slab to a large flake. Belay here or just left in the open gully.
4) 35m. Climb up the gully then transfer to the rib on the left. Climb this on its left edge to a ledge.
5) 40m. Easier climbing leads to a grass terrace. Walk left to below the final rock tower.
6) 4b, 15m. Climb up past a scoop (delicate and slippery) to gain the slab above. Pull for glory over the perched block to finish! There is an oft-climbed easier alternative to the right. © Rockfax

lead pitch 4 stevo ran together 1,2,3, and 5,6. pitch lengths in the guide overestimate by quite a way. Good but gets pretty contrived towards the top.

CurlyStevo ?/Jul/13 AltLd

Lead in 3 pitches, I did 1,2,3 as one pitch, Rob did pitch 4, I then did 5,6 as one pitch. I liked the first 3 pitche of the route but after that it feels quite contrived IMO. 1-2 stars tops. Part of a larger enchainment of tennis shoe, Javelin Buttress, Groove Above and Central Arete.

A comedy of errors you might say. Beautiful first and last pitches, shame about the lower quality in the middle. I led pitch one, three and half of four up the wrong (right) side of the crack, and seven. Chester pitch 2, real second half of four and ran it into pitch 5, we both just walked across pitch 6. The comedy came in the form of my ankle just giving way so i dropped straight down with no warning (good gear held), guessing the route without guidebook, and clipping half ropes accidently so they crossed as the route didn't go where expected. An enjoyable climb

Brilliant! The first and last pitches are the most challenging. Pitch one is quite polished, especially the first half so deserves a bit of respect. The same applies to the last pitch, which is probably the hardest part of the route. Great exposure though and some seroius run-outs to be had on the easier middle pitches. Watch out for that descent path though!

My first trad climb, first slab, first multi-pitch, first Abb. What a climb to start on, Fantastic! Jamie and Rich sung leads, with me following up as a second on all pitchs. A little route reading problem meant we initialy climbed the wrong route on the last pitch. Having realised our mistake, abbed down and climbed it properly for the route tick. Absolutly great views out over the Cwm, spolit a a little on a generally quit day by a party of rather laoud school kids on a geography field trip. Having changed out of my raock shoes into my walking boots found the scramble out quite intresting.
