3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Although a linking pitch, this inventive section of climbing allows the magnificent lower section of Moonraker to be connected to the wild headwall of Dreadnought.
1) 5a, 27m. (Pitch 1 of Moonraker). Make a diagonal traverse up right to a slight rib past a peg, climb round the rib to the base of a steep crack. Climb the crack to a chockstone, then traverse up leftwards across the wall to a stance on a ledge at the base of a corner-crack.
2) 5b, 24m. Climb the corner above the stance to its top (as for Moonraker). Move right into a wide crack/chimney, exit this right and move down to a ledge. From the right-hand end of the ledge climb steeply to another good ledge.
3) 5b, 23m. (Pitch 3 of Dreadnought). Move left out of the cave and climb steep ground to a narrow groove on the right which is followed to a ledge. Ascend the leaning wall above to an overhang and pull though this with difficulty to better holds and easier climbing to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
A link up pitch giving access to the superbly positioned upper pitch of Dreadnought at a reasonable grade. Start on Moonraker (5a) and on pitch 2 break out right at the top of the corner. Cross the chimney of The Hood and step down to a ledge. Move up from the RHS of this ledge heading for another ledge. Continue up to the very smelly cave stance on Dreadnought and belay from the huge thread. Pitch three is the top pitch of Dreadnought at 5a/b

abbed in to the 1st belay of Moonraker. Pete lead the 2nd airy pitch traversing across and up to the cave to the belay for the top pitch of Dreadnought. Exposure .. there is exposure:). I lead the top pitch... excellent climbing with good gear just where you need it.

I lead P1 (Moonraker) and Simon lead P2, P3 Intimidating, with 3 genuine 5b cruxes. The first on the traverse of P2, on dusty insecure ground with some loose rock, so care required. The second two 5b moves are on P3 (Dreadnought), although on more solid rock than P2. A real adventure on very atmospheric ground. The approach through the great cave was unusually slimy and taxing, which added to the atmosphere. We had a low spring tide and a couple of seals as audience, and Dave, Tim, Sarah on Goddess of Moonraker for company, with Sean and Harry attempting Moonraker below us.

Huge sea- moonraker party had just been washed off the approach traverse when we arrived. Exposed e1 - climbing good but quality comes from the adventure - or misadventure.
