42m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
The impressive roof at the right end of the cave is more reasonable than it appears from a distance. Well-protected but strenuous with generally good holds linked by great moves.
1) 6b, 21m. Somehow gain jugs on the lip and follow these into a thrutchy crack leading to a hanging stance. No big cigar?
2) 6b, 21m. The crack above the stance has one very hard move and excellent protection throughout. © Rockfax

Ground-up. I got the pumpy first pitch, fantastic sporty climbing through the unlikely roof - not your average High Tor trad climb!

Had a go previous evening and slipped off and got rope burn then a couple of unsuccessful goes at the roof. Cam back next day and flashed the main pitch. Felt like throwing up when got to the belay from the effort. Too knackered to do the second pitch.

Alt leads with Simon Lee. He led the first pitch and I followed (just). Top pitch is fab. Memorable.
