60m, 2 pitches. ***PLEASE TAKE CARE WITH LOOSE ROCK - anything dislodged from here tends to funnel toward the lower path to Ferocity wall***
Pitch 1 (5) climbs the slab to the left of St Gregory. A pleasant beginners climb in its own right.
Pitch 2 (6a) Has plenty of bolts but is rather more exciting prospect with a bit of a trad feel and some loose rock. Cross the collapsing debris behind the belay and climb up onto the arete. At its top traverse left with crux moves after the bolt which has a rope extension. Finally exit at a white wall and belay on the fence behind.

First pitch was a long cakewalk. Some nice exposure and tough moves on the crux of the second pitch, despite it's loose nature. Would definitely not recommend the direct top out route as it was a horrendous scramble up vertical undergrowth full of nettles and loose rock!

Practiced the route first on alternative leads and seconded the second pitch, proceeded to simul climb it making it very very bold on the first route and especially scary (and bold) on the second pitch, partner hit the crux on first pitch just before i topped out so became especially, if practiced and well bellow your grade (think mid 7's) this makes a good first simul climb, that being said i was shitting my self on the crux of the last pitch.

We took the direct finish by mistake and turned it into a monstrous sport trad hybrid. Don't make the same mistake.

Made a navigational faux pas and traversed right at the top, ended up running it out on a mixture of grass and loose rock and had to have a rope lobbed down to finish. Esoteric fun at least!
