4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Well positioned, although escapable climbing that takes on the full-height of the main face. The top pitch has been upgraded to Severe from its traditional grade of HVD. Start just to the right of a boot-wide crack.
1) 15m. Climb the slab just right of the crack to some big flakes. Climb these to a belay ledge that runs rightwards into Simon Gully.
2) 14m. Traverse right to a crack 1m left of the gully and climb this, and its left wall, to slabby ground. The awkward corner left of the crack can also be climbed, but is harder. Climb leftwards to a belay platform on the arete.
3) 10m. Above is an arete with a crack on its left. Gain the crack from the right, tricky, and follow it to below the leaning wall and arete above. Move right, around the base of the arete and up to a stance at the base of a steep chimney/corner.
4) 4a,13m. A wild pitch. Bridge up the steep corner/chimney which eases after 5m. Continue on better holds to easier ground and the top. © Rockfax

Set up first belay slightly too low, leading to too many corners and mostly stuck ropes. When second and third finally made it to the second belay (which I had to put slightly too low as I couldn't get rope to get to the proper belay), I was no longer confident I should be taking them up and so we walked off (every pitch is easily escapable).

pitch 1

masa-alpin 25/Apr/11 AltLd dog

Michelle lead P1 and I lead the rest. The description and topo for P2 in the definitive guidebook are self-contradictory. I followed the description, which was definitely wrong in the sense the move was far too hard for the grade - I took a leader fall in the starting move, before we moved to the right, following not the description but the topo.

I would recommend pitch 2 of Anvil Chorus is taken instead. It's probably easier and more direct. Last pitch is very hard for V Diff. Whole route would be better as severe.
