45m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A wonderful and hugely-impressive route with two completely differing pitches. If the second falls off the top wall they will land in Brittany! Start beneath the big leaning cracks in the side of the huge groove of Buccaneer.
1) 5b, 20m. Ascend the cracks in the left wall and thug up to the fault-line, passing a large poised block. Belay on a ledge to the left.
2) 6a, 25m. Climb a curving crack on the left to a niche. Gain the roof above, then move out left with difficulty to reach the sensational wall above (peg). Move up and left to an exit corner as for Sinbad. © Rockfax

Led top pitch. Great route! Intimidating line but it's not too bad!

Fell off 5m from the top of the first pitch and could not get back on the wall... so I had a nap instead.

Led P1, steep and thuggy but not technical. Steve found the way through P2 (the peg mentioned in the guide is now a rusty stump) which is a wild and intimidating couple of moves!

I did the first pitch clean. Physical climbing. I sliped on the moss on the crux at top of pitch 2. Well good rout, but short on hard climbing
