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

Lead in one big pitch. Really good and felt very adventurous.

Led both pitches. Bottom pitch is great, traverse is interesting, top of pitch 2 an anticlimax

Excellent value for money. So good in fact, that I ended the second pitch mid-way through and let Phil lead the corner.

Led P2, well worth the walk in

Simon Caldwell 31/May/09 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).

Thought about doing this when we went up last night only to be informed I'd done it ten years ago.
