26m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A rambling classic up the ridge which has a mini-Alpine feel. It is a bit of a one-move-wonder, but well worthwhile despite that.
1) 6m. Climb to a belay on the ledge below a step.
2) 20m. Tricky and exposed moves above the left edge of the ledge then relatively easy ground leads all the way to the top. © Rockfax

A couple tricky moves, lowered my 2nd off, his shoulder let him down at the crux. I couldn't be bothered with splitting the climb into two pitches

Vdiff?? A bit exposed on the crux for a Vdiff, I'm pleased I didnt offer to lead it!

Very hard first move in the rain with 4 pairs of walking boots on my harness. Lost my bottle, the plot and the will to climb. Soaking wet with my poor non climbing husband waiting for hours at the top with coats. Will come back on a fine dry day and finish it.

Late night post pub climbing, the off road braken bashing path up to the crag was more of a challenge than the route. Tired to do it last year but couldn't find the route.
