The route, a top rope problem, is graded British 7a (approximately Font 7C+).
Due to the soft nature of the rock lead climbing is not permitted, meaning all routes must be top roped or soloed.
Climbing at High Rocks involves an entrance fee and the crag is an SSSI. Access details are in the UKC Logbooks.
Jon's ascent was captured on film by Nick Brown of Outcrop Films and is shown below.
