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

noshjewbold 7 Jul, 2017 Lead basically had to aid the first crack as it was wet but lead pitch 2 which has some really good climbing in a great position a little green but that added to the fun

petegunn 19 May, 2016 Lead Beaten to Face Route :(. Had several attempts at the start before cracking it. Second pitch superb, topped out just as the rain came on. Worth seeking out :)
