27m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A wandering line but with good climbing. Start at the right-hand end of the long low roof below a pillar. 1) 5b, 12m. Make a hard move up to good holds. Follow the right-hand groove to a roof. Traverse delicately left to a ledge. 2) 4c, 17m. Step up left onto a ledge and climb the flake before moving out right onto the wall. Follow the wall before stepping back into the corner near the top. © Rockfax

Led P1. Traverse right felt tricky with shrubbery covering the foot ledge!

Ste did the first pitch a good stiff pitch, I did the second, longer , very enjoyable, you do have to fight through the plants though. superb place to sit and belay at the top with a massive Boulder to sling your ropes around.

2nd pitch which Rich backed off seemed extremely hard (felt 5c not 4c). Possible missing hold in top groove? or meant to traverse in diagonally to corner from right. Has belayed on mini ledge and vertical crack left of where the guide suggests.

Done as one big pitch which was brilliant! Traversed into the corner too early though which almost resulted in a rapid descent. Back on route and finished out left for added exposure. Awesome.

In one long pitch. Rope drag not too bad by limiting number of runners used.
