46m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A stunning finish for either Brys or Asahel. Move up the slab towards the overhang to a groove that leads steeply right past a stone eagle/spike. Move up the slab and then make another wild traverse out onto the rib on the right and follow this to the top. © Rockfax

Lead second pitch, would have been much easier if my hands weren't frozen numb

Top pitch is a belter, and pretty out-there.

With P1 of Brys, a very good combination. I noted the alternative finish while doing Asahel, though it took me 40 years to come back to do it. A bit damp in places, and gave myself horrendous rope drag.

Led to the first belay. the square block is nicely hollow, as is the little spike just above it! Liz led the Eagle Finish in awesome style.

As mentioned...cold quartz (it was March) can make it feel harder, worthy of stars.

Led P2. The quartz would be fantastic on a warm day, but is like Teflon when it is cold and damp and you can't feel your fingers or toes! Classic route.

the pull over the eagle is brilliant. The move is easily protected with a sling.

Really nice first pitch up the quartz slab, good gear and engaging climbing. P2 was much tougher, getting on to the eagle was interesting and after that there was no decent gear. Got pretty bad rope drag but managed to get on to the nose, scary lead though. Harder than i thought it was going to be...

In damp conditions, second pitch is challenging ...moves on final wall felt stiff for the 4b technical grade given in the guide.

Did P2 but don't expect any good gear placements when you move up on the the slab section.
