25m.

Rockfax Description
A reasonable route, but care is needed with the rock, although it has cleaned up over the years. Start near the right-hand end of the buttress below a shattered overhanging corner. Move up the corner until you reach a sloping ledge, then a move right gains a jagged crack. Take this up to the overhang and move left into the chimney. Scuttle up this for a few metres before swinging right across the overhanging wall to the arete, and dash up the slab to the top. © Rockfax

Not that many loose holds but the whole thing feels a little 'disconnected', then again half of Holyhead does really. Good moves, big gear(hexes) useful on this.

Some loose rock but there were some lovely moves which I really enjoyed. Worth 2 stars.

Horrific gear for me. Should have taken slings and hexes instead of nuts.

Steep, harder than it looks from below.

Quite varied scary climbing, not the most straightforward warm-up route. Route finding difficult from old guide
