180m, 5 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 5, 2) 5+, 3) 5, 4) 5, 5) 5. Head up the slab just right of the vegetated groove. The crux on the second pitch features thin slabby moves that are a step up in difficulty from the rest of the route. Excellent rock with the exception of the last two pitches which are a little scrappy with some loose blocks on the final pitch. Well bolted where it matters, but with fewer bolts on the easier sections, a selection of nuts may come in useful, though probably aren't essential. © Rockfax

A worthwhile and homogenous route, the crux is a thin slab on pitch 2 which may be more like 5c. Good solid rock apart from P5 where a few blocks may be dubious!

PanzerHanzler 22 Jun, 2017 AltLd O/S The expected loose block was pulled off on p5 by the leader. Had warned the "more experienced" climber about the loose rock warning but they knew better.

Andy Edgar 10 Sep, 2015 Lead O/S Lots of good climbing with a stiff crux for 5b+ probably 5c but 2 good bolt positions. Top pitch seemed sound now and a good 5b on the last few moves, last bolt a little hidden. Didn't use the wires we took.

Simon Caldwell 16 Oct, 2012 AltLd O/S I led pitch 1 (5a+), started to wander onto the 6a to the right but luckily Carmen noticed. C led pitch 2 which was very hard at the crux (probably 5c+ rather than the guidebook 5b+) but right by a bolt. I led pitch 3 (5b), unnerving crux as it was wet. Pitch 4 (5a+) was easier but still interesting, C's lead. I took the last (5b) pitch, which had a mountaineering feel - the rock wasn't as suspect as suggested. A superb route, fairly sustained at around 5b throughout, and well bolted (the guidebook suggestion to take a small rack was uncalled for).

Laramadness 30 Aug, 2011 AltLd Agree with others that the move on pitch 2 for 5b+ is significantly harder than what's on the 5b pitches - at least 5c seems fair.

Rog Wilko 20 Mar, 2011 AltLd An enjoyable ramble which brings you quite abruptly to the summit ridge, but as Pete said, P2 is a sandbag. Better grade the pitch 5c+ or 5b/A0, which makes the route much more consistent.
