35m, 3 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A gnarly first pitch leads to fine and varied climbing on the east face of the buttress.
1) 5c, 12m. Start as for the last route then climb a thin crack with difficulty to a large ledge on the seaward face.
2) 5b, 15m. Traverse around the corner to a groove leading to the fault-line. Traverse right again to a second groove which leads onto a ledge. Belay in the corner.
3) 5b, 15m. Step left out onto the wall where a lovely flake system leads to the top. © Rockfax

P1 is rounded and hard to place adequate gear. The rest was good.

On a sunt as i got my absail rope stuck and climbed out! I had the impression it was hvs but didn't look in the guide book. Must stay away from the demon drink before climbing.
