48m, 2 pitches. A tough and sustained proposition with immaculate climbing and great moves. 1) 5b, 30m. Climb the wall just right of the large rock pyramid boldly for 6m to a rest and gear. Move up to a shallow groove on the on the left, which is followed to an overhang. Climb this (tricky) on the right and move up to a ledge. 1) 5b, 20m. Traverse left under an overhang to a sloping shelf. Pull rightwards through the roof above to gain a technical groove leading to the top. © ROCKFAX

Cool moves. Ropes were trying to pull me off the first overhang so had to pull out a lot of slack which meant i'd have gone for a nice swing.

Hidden - 2nd - 01/Jul/11

Led P1. Fine climbing with three distinct cruxes and quite run out. Probably made it harder by starting too far right. Missed ab point at top so had long walk back in bare feet.
Andy Clarke - AltLd O/S - 03/Jun/11 with Dale

Andy got the first crux pitch, run out 5b moves Think we went wrong way on first moves making it harder than it should of been. I got second pitch which we both thought was easier, 5b to get into groove. Then at top guide book sez walk off right so we did walked up to top of mountain big 45min walk off in bear feet, adds to adventure. brilliant route.

Done in one really good pitch, just had to extend everything. Fantastic runout but fairly secure climbing, never feels too urgent.
