30m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A better route than Anaconda though it can suffer from being a bit dirty. Pitch 1 is an excellent E4 6a.
1) 6a, 20m. A short crack leads to a ledge (possible belay). Continue up the crack to its termination then head right up another thinner crack. Hard moves above gain a pocket and then the ledge - a great pitch.
2) 6b, 10m. Climb straight up as for Anaconda but move right up a crack to easier ground. Finishing direct is harder again. © Rockfax

P1. Last of the 3 big hen cloud e4s. Found it the easiest - straight forward crimp boning. Second go, should've onsighted it but tried hard and fell.
