37m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Sustained, nervy climbing. Start at the groove right of the arete.
1) 5b, 25m. Take the groove to the roof then traverse right to clear it. Follow a corner to the fault-line and take a stance 3m to the left. Take care with rope drag.
2) 5a, 12m. Climb the wall on the right to a roof. Swing right around an arete then climb through the weakness in the overhangs, to the top. © Rockfax

βeta: crux on first pitch are the few moves needed to reach the break under the roof - fairly committing off poor wires (the pegs are knackered). worth taking a large cam for the break (i had a camalot 3.5) as otherwise you've got ground fall potential. tidy route though and even the second pitch is quite pumpy for 5a.

Ceridwen 3 Oct, 2009 Lead dog Got the first hard pitch onsight, then my buddy fell and backed down on the second pitch and it started to rain. Rested for less than a minute on the second pitch, tunnel vision made me miss the crucial hold for pulling through the over hang! Doh! Got it on the next try.
