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

FA. Steve Bancroft, John Allen 1976. Free climbed over two days.

βeta: The first and most important gear placement(the one stopping you landing on the belayer) is blocked with snapped stuck wire. Would be advisable to ab the route first and either remove or failing that thread the nut.

UKB Shark 23 Sep, 1987 AltLd 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.
