30m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A Kinder classic - a fine climb, two varied and interesting pitches and of considerable historical interest.
1) 4b, 12m. Climb the bubbly ridge over a bulge (thread) to a stance on a good ledge.
2) 4c, 18m. Start around on the left of the ledge (move the belay?) and traverse right delicately onto the ridge. From here move right into a groove and climb this to the top. © Rockfax

UKC Logbook Description
Beware falcons may be nesting in the large pocket on pitch 2, this side of the buttress check before climbing during nesting season.

FA. Siegfried Herford 1910

mrphilipoldham 1 Apr AltLd O/S Classy. One hard move per pitch but good climbing throughout. Checked a ravens nest for signs of use for a well timed ornithologist, but it was empty. He told us of a mangled peregrine in the ravine, said it looked like it'd lost a fight with a drone. They're a bloody menace. Female circling and calling all afternoon.

Simon Caldwell 31 May, 2009 Lead O/S I led both pitches. A brilliant route throughout, either pitch would be worth 3 stars in its own right. The line in the Rockfax topo is wrong, after the traverse right on the top pitch, stay on the buttress until you get to the V-groove (topo shows it going right before then).
