Rockfax Description
Two contrasting pitches. Sadly the bottom pitch is very polished.
1) 5a, 20m. Climb the right-facing slippery cleft to the ledges.
2) 4c, 12m. Walk left into the corner then traverse out to the exposed arete and climb it to the top - the positions are superb. © Rockfax

βeta: polished route, S 4a,4a in nunes old guide, my dad still thinks its that grade. I'd give it VS 4c,4b, definatly not worth HVS 5a. excellent route 2 stars.

The Reaper 12 Apr, 2017 AltLd O/S Wow, what an adventure. Grassy and muddy first 10 m climbed in approach shoes because it was soaking wet. Changed into rock boots where the rock started but slipped off higher up because couldn't clean them up properly. No catch by the rope, just slithered out of the start of the cleft. Rest of pitch 1 went OK and really wasn't as polished as I had been expecting, just chunky lay backing with feet on flowstone. Greeted at top of pitch by a loose boulder that must have dropped out of the earthy alcove. Required some tricky avoidance tactics to prevent dislodging it onto Ollie. We trundled it. Second pitch was good after the exposed walk to get to the climbing. Finished in the gathering gloom and abbed off in the dark. Proper old school challenge throughout and for that it may be worth a star but quality climbing makes up about 25% of it.

roger whetton 1 Jul, 2014 - Not sure where the star comes from (history perhaps?). Pitch one is very dirty and polished even by local standards. Pitch two would be pleasant if it wasn't for the worry of the strong possibility of the arete falling down!
