32m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A quality route. Start at a small corner behind the highest boulder.
1) 5b, 25m. Head right for 5m then make a hard move upwards past a pinnacle block to a ledge. The groove above leads, with difficulty, to the fault-line. Place good gear then tackle another groove that gains a large belay ledge on the left.
2) 4c, 15m. Step right and climb the groove past a ledge to reach an exit corner. © Rockfax

PilarMartinez 25 Mar, 2017 2nd Lovely Route, better than what you think. the initial traverse is delicate but good fun, a very small wire can protect it, holds are there but no much protection for the first 5 meters. The first groove is quite technical but good protection. The next groove above the fault line is short but interesting. Just before the top there are a couple of funny challenging moves. well probably one if you are taller than me. I had to make two moves to reach the holes and no much foot holes. Still good fun.. I would give it two stars low.

Andrew Sloan 2 Aug, 2015 Lead O/S The initial rising traverse is poorly protected and very intimidating, with the potential for decking it. The groove was very technical. I thought solid E1 and as hard as Elysium. Tim led second pitch.
