50m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An old favourite with good and varied climbing. The first pitch is generally easy, but very bold. The upper corner is the opposite. Start at the toe of the buttress.
1) 4c, 25m. Climb the bold wall out left then back right - care needed on this pitch with loose rock and few runners.
2) 4c, 25m. Jam and bridge up the corner crack right of the arete. At the top, move out left onto the arete for an astonishingly exposed finish. © Rockfax

βeta: The first pitch is worth avoiding. Easy climbing but loose holds and crap gear - deserves HVS/E1 4b probably. If you are foolish enough to do it, you can get some fairly rubbish opposing nuts near the left arete, also there is a rusty peg around to the left here (haha); then on the next ledge one good nut placement near the peg on the extreme right. Not done the second pitch (did the HVS direct finish which is protected and hence far easier, unless you're a 4b climber who wants to die...)

βeta: The first pitch can be a little loose. There is a pair of pegs along the 'path' that leads to the corner, suitable for belaying the corner pitch. When I did it there was a birdsnest in a crack - was unnerved by the rock squealing until I saw the nest! The corner is polished but the rock is more solid. Typical of the crag.

βeta: Take great care. Little protection of consequence and some dubious holds. I believe ther has been a fatality on this pitch in the past. The top pitch can be easily reached by the path to the side.
