24m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Climb the left-hand crack (loose blocks) to ledges then traverse right to pass the arete to a comfortable stance (4c). Finish up the tough crack to a superb juggy exit. A better combination is to start up the lower cracks of The Beer Hunter and continue up the second pitch as above, dubbed Two Beers. © Rockfax

I completed the first pitch clean onsite. Andrew didn't fancy the second pitch and I was a bit spent. I guess we'll be back

Struggled with lowr section, pulled into right hand off width and decided I did not like the look of it- scuttled right on the lower break to a ledge and belayed. RT led the top section in good style. IMO, better to forget about the first section & just do the second half of the route.

Led the first pitch with the worthwhile 5a start. Had a right faff with the off-width (good job I was wearing Rach's lycra or I might never had made it). Decided we'd had enough after the first pitch knowing Chequers Buttress was just around the corner.
