150m. Route: Follow the obvious curving ridge, keeping close to the edge. The situation and views are spectacular. The compact rock is slippery when wet and possibilities for protection are limited. Nevertheless there is an abundance of positive, incut holds and the quality of the rock is surprisingly good, with only a few loose blocks to contend with (particularly on the very edge of the arête).

thescaredclimber 2 Jul - Nice first scramble up the arete that Phil has had his eye on for years. Pretty short and easy, and found loads of bilberries on the way down.

The lanky man 2 Jul - Short but sweet little ridge; a good intro to scrambling for Emma, and a hill I’ve driven past for years and never ventured up!

caradoc 21 Apr Solo O/S Pretty good. You can keep going to the top of the hill. I noticed a few cracks that gear could be arranged in but probably better as a solo scramble.

thlcr1 2 Jun, 2016 Solo O/S Excellent limestone ridge with loads of positive holds. Slightly awkward to get to, couldn't find a way to avoid the campsite. The rock is surprisingly solid with only a few loose blocks. It does however look like it may be loose so a bit of testing is in order. It's quite continuous, committing and exposed with a couple of slightly awkward bits where a fall would be very serious. All the above made me feel it was more of a grade 2 than a 1. Very good route only slightly spoiled by the incessant road noise.
