125m, 4 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A nice varied route that covers some of the same ground as Coley Smoke but via a more direct version. Start at a large finger-shaped boulder at ground level, below a scooped boulder with three grooves in its top half.
1) N5, 25m. Climb the centre of the scoop and exit via the middle one of the three grooves. Continue up easy slabs to a spike belay below the main crack.
2) N5, 30m. Climb steeply up the jagged crack then, when the angle eases, step right into a left-slanting groove. Head up this as it steepens into a blind layback crack then, where this ends, step right and belay a little higher below some loose blocks.
3) N5+, 40m. Move left for 5m over the loose blocks (care needed) to gain the main corner. Follow this past a roof to where it steepens. Pass the steepening with difficulty then belay in the base of the chimney above.
4) N5-, 30m. Climb the chimney past the jammed boulder and follow the groove until the delightful finger-crack in the slab to the left can be reached. Shared with Coley Smoke. © Rockfax

Magnificent climb. Lead P2, P4 and P6. P2 was a little bit hard to protect in my opinion, but climbing went fine. P3 and P4 were fantastic. Could not find the abseil, so ended up continuing up the last three pitches of Very Expensive ticket. This is absolutely recommended. P5 (P4 on VET) is both beautiful and dark. Great climbing!

P2 and 4. I found p2 terrifying but in reality it isn't that hard. P3 and 4 offer two different styles of equally sublime climbing!. Abseil descent from fixed nut belays 15m below the traverse level.
