2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A great route, the most popular on the Upper Tier. The climbing is sustained and feels tough for the grade, although the gear is good. Start below and slightly to the left of the compelling crack that cuts a swathe through the lichenous carpet.

1) 5b, 45m. Climb up and to the right to reach the base of the crack. Ascend the crack which is steep and relentless. Eventually, good holds lead left to a good belay on a ledge. It is possible to abseil off the pegs, or....
2) 4b, 10m. Climb the broken slab up to easier ground and belay well back as for Park Lane/Doomsville. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Well protected throughout, this classic Welsh E2 is sustained, pumpy and satisfying. Care should be taken on the approach traverse. Follow the continuous and ever-steepening crack on the main headwall of the upper tier for nearly 50m to a broken slab and insitu knot of tat. The 4b second pitch, which mostly ascends 45deg grass, is commonly foregone for an abseil back to base.

Top of pitch 1 belay is now bomber (May 2012): 3 brand new pegs with rings to ab from. Thanks to whoever re-equipped it.

Never been so pumped in my life! Endless meters of the same move, urgh! Bad choice of route to 'warm up' on. The gear is totally bomber and routefinding isn't a problem, just prepare for a 'lactic acid bath' in your forearms ;) My advice would be to abseil from the top of P1 if at all possible. The pegs/tat looked great but for some reason we decided to do P2 as well. It's garbage and mostly climbing up grass slopes completely unprotected, and then you have a gnarly, long walk back to the bags. Better to abseil then get a few more routes in before heading back to the gearing up area.

Straightforward, but not easy. Well protected, sustained 5b interspersed with plenty of opportunities to shake out. Do remember to shake out because it gets tiring on the arms toward the top! A great climb worthy of its three stars.

Thought it would be harder than it looked and it was! Really good, sustained climbing with some ok rests but doesn't really relent until the last few metres, was getting a bit pumped towards the top. I'd say hard E2, may be that's because I did it as a warm up and had slightly cold fingers at the start. Anyway, great route. P1 only, nice ab off.

One of my finer climbing experiences. Cruised until halfway but suddenly got desperately pumped, thereafter an exercise in holding it together with heavy breathing. Was raining into the sea throughout, but timed it well (sprint finish) to reach stance just as heavens opened and came over all euphoric. Reversing approach traverse in the wet felt E2 4a.

We had to 'move together' for 15 feet so that I could get to the stance. Used 5 slings for aid instead of just the single 1 described. The description was unclear as to the location of the aid.
