4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A long and popular trip that has masses of interesting climbing punctuated with good belay ledges. The climbing is fairly tough in places but these sections are well-protected. Begin at a short wall just right of the thin crack at the start of Gronk.
1) 4a, 28m. Boulder up the short steep wall to a big ledge and a good nut runner. Wander right to an easy-angled blocky corner. Follow the corner for a couple of moves until easy-angled slabs and short walls lead back leftwards to a belay in a little bay at a tall white-stained flake.
2) 16m. Layback up to the top of the flake and move right and up. Continue up short walls slightly right until a move left gains easy ground and a block covered belay ledge which is below a corner with an intermittent wide crack in it.
3) 10m. Climb the corner to an old peg and overcome the next section of the corner by moving right and up. Continue to a good stance on the right. Climbing the corner and wide crack direct is much harder.
4) 12m. Move up to below a small bush and then climb diagonally right to a ledge and the top. © Rockfax

Lovely sunny weather. Did in 5 pitches (split the first pitch as there was a group above us). Relatively straight forward, a couple of awkward moves on polished rock, some good gear and some not so good as my 2nd nicely told me when half of it had lifted/popped out. I would say this is the top end of a VDiff or bottom end of HVD with the polish.

Lots of polish on the chimney made ascent a bit awkward. After that felt a bit exposed in parts but fair protection and good holds to finally a good ledge and anchors.

An almost perfect mini- expedition. Taking counsel of that wise old sage St Steve the Healer led the ever intrepid Jimb0 and I to venture, one unseasonably warm evening after work, onto this fine line, wending our way up sun warmed slabs and flakes, lightly polished cracks and corners, and abundantly furnished stances and belays. Deviously mixing descriptions in the Avon and South West Climbs guides resulted in five pitches, and so passing all the [though minor] difficulties to Jimb0. Street lights and headlights on the A40, and that perennially festive Clifton bridge, surprisingly atmospheric as dusk fell on our final moves. A scramble back through the woods in the dark, to the car, and picnic on crisps and Fanta.

Wrighty87 28/Apr/09 AltLd O/S

Found it hard to follow the route as described in the logbook and ended up going pretty much straight up the face, much harder climbing, more like 5b/5c in places. Also missed the first belay spot and contiuned in my incorrect path and ended up at the 2nd belay spot but on the left, tricky getting up there from that side. i think i need to work on reading the guidebook....

First taste of the Avon Gorge. Easy access; park and climb out of the boot (almost). Polish up to 4 metres made getting on the route a challenge, but once started the rest was nowhere near as bad. Pleasant progress up to the final belay position which is shared with the spacewalk traverse pitch 4 of Gronk; a tempting glimpse of things to come.
