69m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fantastic excursion through the black walls, facing the challenge of the central and tallest section of wall.
1) 4c, 18m. Start just to the right of the overhang above the start of Zig Zag. Climb the black wall past small ledges for 9m. Step right and head up the wall to a block belay on the right.
2) 5b, 25m. Climb the steep wall on the left behind the belay and gain a rightward-trending ramp-line. Follow this until it butts up against a capping roof. Make an exciting pull through the left side of the roof and climb straight up to a ledge. Wander rightwards along the ledge to a block belay.
3) 4b, 20m. Step back left and climb the groove above the belay to the roof, which is taken via the large shattered weakness. © Rockfax

Got freaked out by water coming down the wall behind the first belay, not enough pysche to crack on through. You can't win em all!

Lead P2. RH start, bit bold and quite cheeky for 4c. P2 was really good especially through the overhang. P3 was interesting too :)

Hairy first pitch! Did a possible variation of 3rd pitch (up groove, traverse left under overhang to climb it on LHS) which was good.

I got the easy last pitch, misinterpreted the guide and went way too far left.

A very good route, I had the 1st and 3rd pitch Andy got the crux. I find this crag very compact with not much gear, but still safe anuf. I joked around with Andy on the crux not much style haha he climbed it very well I can talk later on in this wkend my style was poor ;)

Direct variant, as per NWR. P1&3. Very good. The 'easy' pitches, weren't that easy, and quite serious. Nice crux moves on P2.
