75m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A fine climb up a strong line that sees few ascents nowadays. The 1st pitch is thoroughly unpleasant and there is some loose rock on the rest of the climb, but despite this it is well-worth seeking out. Be aware of any bird/access restrictions.
1) 4a, 24m. From the fence climb grassy rock into a shallow groove and over a bulge to a stance just below the break.
2) 4b, 22m. Traverse round the arete and follow the break as it rises across the face with the occasional moves on the slab below to avoid the steep bits. There is a stance just short of some flakes.
3) 4b, 20m. Traverse right below the flakes to a niche then climb up and right to regain the break. Continue to a stance and thread and/or tree belays in an open niche.
4) 10m. Easy grassy scrambling leads to the ridge. © Rockfax

Dafydd Llywelyn 29 May, 2016 AltLd dnf Partner fell and ripped gear on the 1st pitch.. loose and poorly protected. Went to have a look further up, but this may require some serious gardening before it's in a fit state. Would recommend to no-one but maybe John Arran!

Graeme Hammond 27 Aug, 2014 Lead O/S Unpleasant and VERY vegetated (avoid if damp!) first pitch but generally solid and with good gear. Traverse pitch excellent before it turns back to grass. Worth doing if you can.

Simon Caldwell 4 Jun, 2011 AltLd O/S The strangest 3* route I've ever climbed. I led pitch 1 - loose, poorly protected, vegetated, utterly hideous. Carmen led pitch 2, which was excellent. I led pitch 3, which started off excellent, but turned back to vegetated choss at the end, though at least it was well protected. Carmen then 'led' the final vegetated walk off. Overall VS 4b but the VS is for the 4a pitch, the two 4b pitches were easy HS 4b. Three stars? Maybe if you bring a very long ladder to get up the first pitch...
