2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Good steep climbing with an enigmatic crux. Start below a crack, close to the left-hand end of the crag, just right of Bezel's groove.
1) 5b, 35m. A steep start gains the crack/groove, climb this to the roof using some pockets near the arete. A hard move through the roof leads up to a reasonable ledge.
2) 4c, 12m. The large wide crack on the left is slightly loose and blocky, but it does lead to the top. Alternatively, abseil off a spike to avoid this pitch. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
The obvious crack/corner line just right of Bezel, steep but with big holds on the left hand wall. Good route

Bold and serious. I would guess that it feels like E2 if you generally climb E4. I would say E3, hard 5b

Rested on the rope a couple of times but brilliant route. Lowered off.

P1 was was lovely. Generous holds, steep with some lovely moves. Had some difficulty getting over the bulge. I lead P2, my first E2 of any description. Not technically difficult but a chossy nightmare! Gear was optimistic and every hold moved. Lead P2 clean.

James Oswald 05/Aug/13 2nd O/S

Really pumpy, Jon had to rest twice (warm up). Only just clean..

better than I thought it would be. There was even some good climbing on the second pitch.

First pitch is never the stated 37m in the select guide, sandbagged myself into stringing p1 + p2 together as thought I hadn't gone far enough. Some big gear would have been useful for top pitch.

Some quality climbing, good and tricky to sort gear. i wouldnt argue with E3 but i had no big gear. The thing about big holds out left is pretty bollocks. lowered off first pitch. could do with re-threading soon. you would need to cut the old stuff and take some thin tape.

i thought id cruise this - no sir! this felt hard at E2 but it doesnt warrant E3. very very good and quite pumpy / sustained, good value. big gear - hexes of use.
