25m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A neglected climb which was once a classic test-piece.
1) 6a, 15m. Make bold moves up the wall from the right-hand end of the ledge. Often avoided by doing Our Father.
2) 6b, 10m. Desperate moves into the groove above the cave. © Rockfax

Al Evans ??, 2008 Lead O/S Done in two pushes, one from the ground up for pitch one, nobody could follow so went back the next day and abbed down into the Our Father cave, climbed from there to the top with B Fred using one point of aid. Reasonably pleased with this.
