45m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
1) 4c, 20m. Climb the shallow groove with a wide crack just right of the tree at the foot of the face - steeper than it looks - then as it fades trend right to a belay and good stance on the terrace.
2) 4c, 25m. Follow the slabby left wall of the open groove then trend up left again up the loose and grassy scoop above. Finish up the fine but short-lived jamming crack high on the left. © Rockfax

Really good, though off width fight the bottom best enjoyed in hindsight. Second pitch really contrasting in being delicate and steady. (I led P1). P1 surely 5a unless you are off-width fab!

I led first pitch-tricky polished off-width. John B led second pitch-I went up the face rather than the hand-jam

Tom P1, me P2. Both had some tricky bits, probably hardest on P1, but the last part of P2 is the best climbing. Would be better if generally less vegetated although still a good route.

Ralph led P1 - not easy at steep bulge. I led P2 - more scary than hard (vegetated & less than solid)

Lead both pitches. Thought this was much better then Medusa, a good knee jam solves the first pitch. If the traverse to the top crack were to be cleaned I'd probably give it 3*, 2* as it is (the grass really dissuades from moving towards the brilliant finale on the left). Pitch 1 now has a nut in it, yours if you can get it out.

James Lowe 08/Aug/15 AltLd O/S

Move halfway up the first pitch was a bit perplexing. Chalked up crack seemed of little use. Possibly missing the obvious beta!

Pitch 2 - shame about the middle of the second pitch being so loose and overgrown.
