100m. The clough to the right of the crag, named on the OS 1:25K map but not on the Harveys/BMC. The bottom falls rarely form but when they do give a good 8m pitch of III. The rest is worthwhile in its own right, with a short icefall pitch and several shorter steps.

HimTiggins 21 Mar, 2018 Solo O/S First pitch a bit steep for me to want to solo. Still plenty of ice, but now pretty melty. Some (particularly one) fun steps further up.

buxtoncoffeelover 20 Mar, 2018 Solo Abbed down the main/first icefall & climbed belayed from above - very steep & combination of brittle icicles, meltwater & some excellent soft/solid ice made for a great climb, but not for me to lead. Soloed the remaining steps/falls, & enjoyed some very strange ice formations in the heather on the upper right walls. A very worthwhile excursion

cragtyke 20 Mar, 2018 TR First 10 feet a bit thin so toproped main pitch. Upper sections fattest I've seen with climbable iced heather bobbles.

Iain Thow 10 Feb, 2017 Solo Bottom pitch not in but the slabs and blocky pitches above had a good coating of ice, albeit with some water too. Easyish Grade II in the conditions.

Deezel65 7 Feb, 2015 TR rpt Soloed except the main fall which we top roped due to the conditions which in fairness were better than they looked although the top out was thin.

Mike_d78 28 Feb, 2013 Solo rpt Forced out towards middle from half height due to thin ice on right, which made it more interesting than previously when I have stuck to the right.
