28m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A classic route though with an arduous (but avoidable) start. Using the chimney start lowers the route to an amenable HS 4b.
1) 5a, 18m. Climb the fingery polished scoop by a long reach, or avoid it by the chimney on the left. Weave up towards the overhangs, pulling over a bulge with difficulty to enter a groove. Trend right below the huge roofs to the Pipe stance.
2) 3c, 10m. The pleasant jamming cracks on the right are awkward to enter and soon lead to the cliff top. © Rockfax

5a Start. An absolutely cracking route, highly recommended. The position, variety and nice exposure on final easy pitch are not to be missed. I do not know why this is not as popular as the other routes (black and tans etc). Gear is good once reached, run out slightly for the tech grade. In fairness new partner could not pull initial move sequence.

Failed at the 5a start. Reached the obvious flake but the small footholds felt desparately polished. Opted for the 4b start, which made the route fairly steady for ther grade.

My partner was supposed to be leading but was struggling with the start so I decided to have a go. This was my first proper lead and a great one at that. Scary moment came after the direct start as I struggled to find a place for my first piece of gear 5m above the ground.

Absolutely hated this, a broken hand hold really put me off, along with fierce rock overs on green roundedness. The hard start was good though.
