40m, 2 pitches. One of the original lines here, and still a terrific one. It takes the central line of grooves between the caves, in the centre of the wide buttress. Climb up to an overhang at around 11m, then move left onto a good ledge. Easier moves then gain the foot of a steep groove, which is followed to a bigger ledge on the right (possible belay). Climb the cracked groove above to a good exit. © ROCKFAX

Long and atmospheric climb (as Stackpole can offer). Hard moves in the first groove towards the top, with pulling through a widening crack and a leftward traverse with good hand jamming and little foot holds. The rest of the climb is sustained, steep with big holds. Good gear all the way through apart on the crux part which is a bit bold.
