45m, 2 pitches. Rock fall has changed the 1st pitch to 5a. 2nd pitch steep 4c.

A very good and interesting route but hard as the rock fall makes the traverse very challenging. I was seconding and did struggle when traversing as went high so my helmet got a bit stuck in the chimney then had to slightly come down but there are no foot holes and rocking over was very uncomfortable for me. you can protect the traverse with a couple of small friends. I am glad Julian led it :-) I led the second pitch and it is the typical Swanage standards of being steep and powerful. The guide book says a serious pitch.. think because the hole pitch is quite intense and steep. Still very good protection so you can put as much gear as you like. I would give it one star because of the first pitch with that awkward traverse.

Led P1. Tried to go through the chimney at first, but even my slim frame won't fit through. Tough, awkward moves (take your helmet off!) to gain the ledge, but good overhead gear can be found.

Archetypal Ruckle VS - steep, exposed and quite serious with some doubtful rock. I took some time before making the very exposed traverse at the start of the second pitch,but no real problems after that.
