32m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A classic graunch; well protected and quite bizarre though not too difficult for those used to gritstone weirdness.
1) 5b, 14m. Traverse the lowest break to a vertical slot and wriggle up this with difficulty. Shuffle out to the arete (harassing for the short) to a fine stance and awkward belays.
2) 5b, 14m. Roll off the ledge and use a tiny pocket to lunge for the spike. Continue left then pull up onto a short ramp back to the cliff top. This is the original line. The break in the north wall is sometimes followed all the way to the gully by mistake. © Rockfax

I led P1, Olly led P2. Leaving the ledge as a second was the scariest part of the route! We almost got lost I belayed on the ledge below where i was meant to a fair bit of faff all added to the experience!

Classic. Two very contrasting pitches, Thruchy first pitch and delicate second. More like HVS if you're used to grit.

FANTASTIC!!! led both pitches. Not sure why this is E2 in the new guide book as its closer to HVS. Managed to work out an easy trick of lying on my back going head first onto the ledge before standing up to overcome the 'crack' on the first pitch, the rest of the pitch is about VS. On the 2nd pitch a couple of tricky but not overly hard moves using the pockets gains the spike. Lassoing looked more effort than just climbing to it. After this the climbing is on perfect jams with good gear and about VS all the way to the gully. What a route :)

Gareth did the 1st pitch clean despite sounding like he was being tortured as he tried to get up the vertical crack. I lead the 2nd pitch which went well untill I accidently tried the E2 5c finish, fell off and went up the right way

Partner tried to lead the first pitch and unfortunately got his knee stuck in the only vertical crack, and needed a rope from above.
