40m. Superb sustained climbing - high in the grade. Starting at mid-height in the centre of the wall is a groove line running right to left. Start up the wall below this to enter the groove and follow it leftwards to the top.

AliRLee 17 May Lead O/S Wouldn't say this is 4*, a good 2* in my books. Still great climb, just doesn't follow an obvious line.

Euan Todd 22 Sep, 2016 Lead dnf Felt hard E2 through the crux bulge, where I went straight up and tried to go through the small roof, should have trended leftwards with the ramp. Pumped out and lowered off, absolutely goosed after 2 and a bit hours on the lead. Saved the G/U at least. Went back a few days later, and got rained off. Absolutely gutted. Awesome flowing climbing, would be hard E2/soft E3 to finish maybe. The situation is spectacular.

Brian Pollock 19 Aug, 2015 Lead O/S Really enjoyed this. Total contrast to its 4 star neighbour. E3 in the new guide and felt fair at that grade although certainly not hard E3 as I got up it.
