54m, 2 pitches. Allegedly this is the best pitch at it's grade on the cliff. Given that there are only 2 E3's on the crag shouldn't detract. 1. 36m(5c) From the flake belay on Hydra climb up to some stepped grooves to a rest. Move diagonally left to the top of the Hydra groove. Go up about 2m and traverse right to a flat hold in the wall. Then go up via a groove and crack. 2. 18m(4b) Easy slab.

Superb pitch. Shame about the rattly, run-out bit low down but the main wall is delightful.
