46m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Scrappy in parts but it has some good climbing. Start by scrambling up to the base of the V-groove.
1) 4a, 13m. Ascend the groove to a grass ledge on the right.
2) 4a, 18m. Move left across the groove to a rib left of the small corner capped by an overhang. Climb the rib and move back right above the roof and carry on up a crack to another grassy ledge.
3) 4b, 15m. Head up the corner and then the crack to arrive at another ledge. The short wall above leads to the top. © Rockfax

Led P3 - not as tough as it looked. P1 is definitely the crux, and looks like it'd be horrendous if it were wetter.

Led pitches 1 and 3. Found pitch 3 (the supposed crux) far easier than pitch 1.

Nice route, but absolutely no way is the first pitch 4a. I reckon 4c.

Me P1, P3, Rog P2 and top pitch. P1 harder than HS, top pitch a wee bit bold.

Rog Wilko 12/Jul/13 AltLd

Quite bold at times, but usually on the easier bits

phew! The chimney was pretty hellish, i had to pull up on a nut at the crux because i am a terrible person. Skipped around P2, P3 was really fun.

The guide gives HS for the first pitch. It does warrant a vs,4b we thought....or were we climbing u.s.? A good varies route though and it does need more ascents to keep the vegetation away.

climbed in the wet a disgusting slimy first pitch rested on first pitch due to not exiting right early enough

with billy from atcp
The Ivanator 26/May/09 AltLd O/S

I led p1 & p3. Slimy (after rain) and strenuous chimney on p1 definitely the crux, not p3 as the guidebook suggests. Belays at the top are scarce, using a braced body belay well back is probably safer than using the single dubious nut placement I found.

Steve did first pitch which was wet and slimey on one side of the corner. i strugled seconding it. I led pitch 2 & 3 ( i think) together and ended up finishing up adjacent route?

Felt hard for grade, especially the first pitch. P2 felt very exposed as well.
