33m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A sustained, varied climb and one of the best E1s at Swanage. Start under a prominent, smooth-sided corner.

1) 5a, 18m. Climb a corner to the roof, and swing right to beneath the smooth-sided corner. Climb the fine corner to the mid-height break and belay on a ledge to the right.
2) 5b, 15m. Step right onto the wall and climb easily, but boldly up to the chert band and roof - old hidden peg. Arrange good gear, then step left and climb the overhang to finish up the bold wall. © Rockfax

CurlyStevo 11 Jan, 2014 AltLd Brilliant route. I lead pitch 1. I'm not sure which pitch is the crux. I find the 5b move on pitch 2 more like 5a and the gear is good for that move, there is a few 4c/5a moves above that where the gear is a little below you but not too bold. The bolder climbing to the top is much easier but the rock is a bit suspect. Pitch 1 I find quite sustained and the moves near the top of the crack I find fairly stiff 5a but this pitch is well protected throughout.

Owen W-G 30 Apr, 2005 Lead O/S Led both pitches. UPDATE: have since done this a bunch of times, with varying difficulties on P2. The correct method is to step 1m RIGHT from the belay ledge and head straight up. If you find the mouldy peg hidden just under the overlap you are going the right way. Heading up and left from the stance is totally possible but harder with probably scarier.
