35m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Atmospheric. A hard start is followed by easier but serious climbing in an impressive situation. 1) 5c, 7m. Start on the right of the ledge and just left of the arete. Attack the mean, leaning cracks to a small stance. 2) 5a, 26m. Climb the steep wall above, past a couple of pegs, to gain the large corner. Jam up this to the roof and then traverse wildly left before an escape into a chimney can be made. Follow the chimney to a steep grassy exit. © Rockfax

Beaten to Face Route :(. Had several attempts at the start before having to rest on the gear. Second pitch superb, topped out just as the rain came on. Worth seeking out :)

Date is a guess. Start is mean. 2nd pitch had an air of seriousness to it too
