40m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
An eliminate with an absorbing first pitch. Start just right of a chimney in an arete, 8m right of Ledgend Direct.
1) 5c, 25m. Gain a slot (thread) then pull out right to cross a bulge. Continue to a rest on Yellow Wall. Traverse left to a flake then follow the sustained crack (thread) to the fault-line. Belay on the left in the corner as for Batt Crack.
2) 4c, 15m. Move 2m right then finish rightwards through a V-shaped roof. © Rockfax

Felt rather exposed and the crux was was hard when you can't reach the jug!

What a shambles! Got confused doing the move past the thread and fell several times. Burned out then dogged / aided my way to the top.

Maybe I missed a runner but I was facing groundfall from 10 - 15 meters, after passing the thread. More serious than the guidebook let on! Upper crux was good fun.

First pitch definitely gets 2 stars, great moves, theres even a slabby (for Swanage) section at one point

Fell a few times due to puny arm strength! Nice mix of problems on p1.

Loz took a big fall and nearly decked! Very harrowing experience. I went on to lead the first pitch.
